A race to the end

All of life is a grotesque race to the end

The unsavoury mix of sin, righteousness, hate and love

A journey through basic instructions

Parameters from Him, who made yesterday, hold today and discern tomorrow

The architect of time, destination and the route through and to it


 A sojourn through time flagged off with divine bellow

Directives unblemished, clear and definite

“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the

garden thou mayest freely eat” (Genesis 2:16)

“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat

of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:17)

The primary hint on disobedience, sin and effect

A consequence as bright as sunlight


 Heavenly guide jettisoned by man

Wobbling down the wide and beautiful terrain

The road of destructive bliss

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof

are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12)

Lamentation, pain and death unleash ferocious claws of grief

Cotton of privilege and liberty lost in the wind.


Enter the bitter chase for survival

Avoidable toil, groan and tears

Reprimands setup with a hammer

“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy

conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children…” (Genesis3:16)

“And unto Adam he said… cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow

shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life. In the sweat of thy face shalt

thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground” (Genesis 3:17-19)

The end was within sight; everything became vanity.


Where is man headed?

What is known of his duration?

The journey devoid of time frame

A return trip to the dust

“For out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt

thou return” (Gen. 3:19b)

Immaterial if the mat, cloth, or casket is crafted in gold


 A walk-through with no rational definition

 Be mindful of its inevitable outcome

Guided by a quest for eternity

Thinking, living and relating right with the patentee

Knowing that the stopover is brief and transient

Focusing rightly on heaven; the ultimate and perfect abode


 With a terminal end, God asserts authority

The wheel of justice revolve around His command

 Time, a colossal waste without heaven

The race, zilch without Jesus

All mortal attainment and possession, irrelevant in the grave

“God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required

of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God” (Luke 12:20-21)

At the finish line, knowledge is lost of the starting block

Oblivious the race to the end is over.
