The Human Race

Nobody has the time to slow down. 

Just yesterday we were welcoming a new year,

and today we celebrate its departure. 

Everybody’s busy. 

Running a race. 

Chasing god knows what

& why we are doing it?

Even the god doesn’t know that. 

Doping on the doses of drugs, alcohol & fake smiles, 

Without recovering from the exhaustion, injuries & defeats of the last one,

We are ready to run again.

Piling up at the starting line,

Ready for another race. 

The human race… 

Chasing god knows what.

Failing to notice that the time got another year older today;

And our impending death a year younger.
