Begin To Complete The Race

B-egin to complete the race,
E-arly tenth of January;
N-ever stop aiming at finish line,
E-nd of the long journey.
F-ully complete the race,
R-un to the gate of heaven;
I-t's time to reaffirm the oath,
D-o let your life be

S-tart to complete the race,
A-nticipating hurt and pain;
N-ever turn a blind eye
T-o the crown you shall gain.
I-n the warmth of true God
A-lmighty Father's embrace;
G-reat strength you shall have,
O-nce you begin to complete the race.

by Bernard F. Asuncion
