Coming Together in Tokyo

When the world comes together
to compete in one place,
it all boils down
to just one certain race.

If you're thinking that race
is the men's marathon,
that'd be a good guess.
But your guess would be wrong.

The race that I'm meaning
is not run with feet.
It does not involve bikes
or some swimming pool feats.

The race most important
is that which unites.
It's what makes us a family.
It's what lights up the nights.

The race is called human.
We are diverse yet one.
And this race calls for walking
in peace as we run.

Let's hear it for the human race!

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
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.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
