The Race

    “The Race,” New Era, June 1993, 51

    The Race

    I messed up in the last race.

    I feel really bad.

    I’ve practiced and practiced

    to make up for that mistake.

    I think I’m ready to ask for

    another chance.

    The best thing is

    that my Coach will give me

    all the chances I want.

    He’s not concerned with winning

    every time.

    Only my eventual mastery of

    the Race.
