To Run or Not to Run Some walk the path of life
With slow and easy gait
They take the time to smell the rose
That bloomed a little late

Others run the trodden path
And pass the roses by
They'll tell you life is far too short
To spend it watching the sky

And who am I to tell you
Which pace will suit you best?
You, yourself ought to know
Much better than the rest

But if you are not sure of
How fast or slow to go
I'll share with you a hint
You may already know

Those who choose to run the course
Will appear to have been cursed
For it's those who run the race the fastest
That tend to finish first
