Running on my track
of life, I cannot relax
looking left and right
without mercy and grace
I can hardly lose sight
have to anyhow win the game.
To be first in the race
is my only aim
eyeing others, a self-defeating trait
prevents one from thinking, looking straight
I lose and blame my own performance.

i have also written a poem on the matter, in my poem it was ‘rallying’ maybe i should repost it!
i understand very well what you mean here, and you probably used first person for other reasons not because of autobiographic tendencies.
