Life Is Like A Marathon

Life is like a marathon
That we cannot reject, we must run
It's a continuous route that we travel on
At some points the path is tough, sometimes it's fun

Even though the trek is lengthy
We don't have to do it alone
By your side, I'm fierce and I'm frail
With you I can navigate through the unknown

In this race, we may stumble
We are likely to collapse or trip
In this marathon we learn to get back up
And fight furiously through every dip

This road is extensive and coarse
But we must battle forward
Striding past every obstacle
And looking past the pain onward

So run this race to your utmost ability
Give everything that you got
Because at the precious finish line
People will remember how hard you fought



Hello friends! Thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Ella Phillips and I am 19 years old. I started this account way back when I was just 13. Still, readers are being touched by my words, which means the world to me. I am going to post more of my poems to hopefully reach out to more people. Thank you for all the love and support. :) More about me: - I am currently going to college to earn my bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice, with a minor in forensic science - My goal is to one day become a police officer, ultimately a K-9 officer or detective - The reason I want to be a police officer is to have an impact on my community and serve others - I am the oldest of 3 siblings and own a little miniature poodle named Sugar The reason I write poems is to give others hope and courage. I believe that every person is special and beautiful, no matter what they look like or what their past is. I decided to post my poems here so that others might be touched. If anybody needs encouragement, feel free to email me and I will reply back as soon as I can. God Bless. "Let your light so shine before men​,​ that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
