He rolled up beside me at the stoplight
On Belleview Avenue

A wide-body black Ford 450 truck that
Looked like it could eat the
Pavement beneath us

When the light turned green, he sped off
Like a racecar at The Daytona 500

It was amusing that he paid so little
Regard to the ice and snow

Broadway was two minutes ahead
And we were again side by side
As the light turned red

In his hurry to get ahead....
To beat the traffic that crept along
In the icy conditions

He hadn't really gained much ground
With his bravado and burst of speed

One might have thought
He was running in place

It dawned on me that
We all run our own race....
Each separately at our own pace

One day arriving at that promised place
Where bravado and speed
Have been replaced

By the sweet, sweet, heavenly grace

And His long awaited

                         Everlasting embrace.
