Michael Perez wrote this poem while in Africa.

The spoken word is about the transition through the normal mundane tension of life, and passing through that gateway by making a choice to go. Go to the nations. To respond to the whisper, the rumor that there is something more. The World Race can be an option to facilitate the “go” in someone’s life.

my race my race my race
my race, more than the color of my skin and the language I speak
More than a 5 or 10k
More than a run in the park awaiting for the sound of the gun to blast to activate my stride, my step, my course
Destiny in the making, purpose for the taking
Awakened in a season, rather forsaken a reason for my being, the reason for my seeing, the reason for my hearing, my speaking, my life, my choice
My longing to dispose of a comfort and a fear that’s recycled and reused me for too long
Too many tears not poured into the right soil, the right soul
Too many years not reaping the ripe harvest, the right mind set in my ways reevaluating my calling because I couldn’t calculate it
Reconsidering convenience because I couldn’t handle the leaving of home
The known for the unknown
The digital follow me’s that have kept me at ease, appeasing the heart of me
Keeping the real followers at a distance for the scared of me
Status-quos, fb statuses for real life and unpredictable challenges so grow and break the rest of me, realizing that all of Him is the only best of me for them to see
I lost part of me in the process, part of me in the nonsense part of me to get sense but not change, my life is worth more than
dreams that keep me dreaming and people waiting, keep me waiting and people dreaming about a love so deep it keeps them gasping for His air
His breath to keep them breathing, His words to keep them believing
Longing for more of Him in the form of me and me longing for more of
Him in the form of them, so I go
