That Life Is A Tough Journey

That life is  a tough journey most surely not a lie
We were born as helpless and helpless we will die
Our youth and prime passes quickly we soon do grow old
And time it does weary the brave and the bold
Time eventually does become everyone's foe
The fastest man in the World five decades ago
His fastest pace now  does seem rather slow
The passing of the Seasons on him does show
A mere shadow of the man that he used to be
Though in his prime years none  ran as fast as he
A World record holder and  winner of Olympic Gold
But the prime years pass quickly and great men grow old
In his mid seventies and stiff on his feet
Who would believe he was an all conquering Olympic Athlete.
