Life is Like "The Boston" _Greg Asimakoupoulos-There's more to a marathon than meets the eyeIt's a metaphor for living.
Like "The Boston," life's a race.
There are hills, downpours and shin splints.
There's a stiff wind in your face.
While you run it flanked by others,
often times you feel alone.
You get winded and discouraged.
You're exhausted to the bone.
Life is never like a cake walk.
It's a marathon at best.
It's a measure of endurance.
It's a complicated test.
But a second wind awaits you
if you pace yourself each day.
Dropping out is not an option.
Finish strong! Go all the way!

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
