Race For Life

by Christine Holden
(UK)

An annual event
A city proud
A sporting challenge
An excited crowd
Waving banners, urging on
Father, Mother, Daughter, Son.
A community heart
from the start
began to beat
a faster pace
for marathon runners
in the race.

An annual event
A city sad
A sporting challenge
That can’t be bad?
Flashing lights, urging on
Father, Mother, Daughter, Son.
A community heart
at the end
began to beat
began to tend
their marathon runners
in the race.
And loved ones?
Blood and tears on their face.
