Assign me my fate, and I won’t hesitate.
Pause for a moment and do a brief retake.
Distort the original, and the copies die at a slow rate.
Line me up at the starting line, and I will run the race.
Start me in the blocks, and I will write the page.
Transmute me into gold, and I will acknowledge I’m growing old.
Lace after lace,
Pace after pace,
Race after race,
Life demands all sorts of repetitive tasks.
Each repetition another tick forward to a moment that won’t last.
And, once again, we are asked:
For what do we strive?
In what do we ground our pride?
And how are we to live our lives?
