The human race …… Why is it called the human race?……. Why are we called a race?? Is that a scientific name or is that what we are actually doing in life here on earth?
Right from birth every human being has be on the run, every human has been running, running towards something or from something ( but its better you run towards something, it qualifies the fact that you have a purpose). And in this race if you dare slack back, if you are drooping or become floppy you are going to loose before you even get to the middle of the track.
Alright, Let me give an instance……. When you were about to be formed in your mother’s womb…. When there was an intercourse from both your parents in any way, married or unmarried…. The moment your dad released the spermatozoa, I bet you were running towards the ovary ( even if you weren’t a full life form yet) … towards your moms egg to fertilize it… cause for every sperm released millions of life forces are on the run, they are on the run towards one goal to fertilize the egg….and the moment one reaches or any number resulting to multiply children at once, the rest loose, the rest dies off, that’s life for you… Most people forget that they have been running from the time they were about to be born… when they come into this world and see life when the see challenges and the find difficult situations they do what QUIT…. They get tired, they lose hope, the lose bearing, meaning, essence, focus, vision, THEY GIVE UP.
When running don’t you ever stop, I repeat don’t you ever stop or else you wouldn’t make it to the finish line before the time is up!!… Everybody is racing , everyone wants that position you have now, and if you dare stop, slack or get lazy, somebody somewhere would catch up with you and collect it from you.
Are you a dead body? then why aren’t you running, why did you choose to give up and start self-pitying yourself hoping the world would look at your face and see how wounded you are and give you back the space you just lost when you ought to change your shoes and keep on running The only body that can’t race, that can’t run is the dead body and I believe you reading this means not dead.,. I once read a quote that said: if the race gets harder change your shoe. That’s it – don’t ever stop running EVER!! Keep on running, and run alone you’ll cover more grounds… don’t talk while running ( keeping unnecessary friends),….you can never find Olympic racers talking to themselves on the track while running… NO!! Everybody is focused, Every one of them wants to get to that finish line …. They want to win the race.
That’s it … the human life is race… you either run or get out the way!!!
