They thought it would be a hundred yard dash--
quick,hard and done--
but the finish line faded, so they ran on
220, 440 and more.
The pace slowed, everyone fell into rhythm
carrying the baton.
Supporters cheered, encouraged,
and gave a cup of cold water.
With courage and grace
they ran on and on--a marathon--
until one day, unexpectedly
they had crossed the finish line.
