In this marathon called life,

The newer paths I embrace,

To relinquish the older ones,

Taking some diversions,

 To retain my zest for life ,

without compromising 

On my core principles ,

Making new bonds to let go

 the older ones and ,

Holding fervently to 

my individuality,

In search of happiness 

and peace ,

Will decide the 

course of my life. Marathon
