6424. Pay attention to your own raceAs you run along the Path of Eternity,
Pay all attention to your own inner race.
If you try to carry
Your slower brothers and sisters
While running fast, faster, fastest
To your goal,
Your own frustration will come forward
Again and again
And unmistakably delay
Your spiritual progress.
