The Relay Race


My life is
Like a relay race
God gave my soul
Love
My soul passed it on
To the infant
Who added form
And passed it on
To the child
Who added faith
And passed it on
To the adolescent
Who added hope
And passed it on
To the young mother
Who added consistency
And passed it on
To the woman
Who added acceptance
And passed it on
To who I am now
To add gratitude
And will pass it on
To the me
Who crosses the
Finish line
