Human Race

I joined the race at birth
first tooth, first steps, 

how do I compare 
to all the rest? 

Who got the best grades in school
and who got accepted to the best schools?

Then who got the best job,
the best spouse, the best address?

Who looks 
the best after 55?
Who lives the longest? 

Towards the end I finally realize
none of it matters.

I could have walked
a little slower

and still arrive 
in time to die
like all the rest.
