Race Prayer

given by Sri Chinmoy
at the two-mile race in New York


O our 3,100-mile-run runners,  
My sleepless, prayerful, soulful, powerful  
And proud gratitude-heart-throbs  
I have discovered  
In your aspiration-mountain-height  
And in your dedication-fountain-delight.

O my Saturday two-mile-race runners,  
Your running is challenging,  
Yet charming and thrilling.
