Be A Winner
No matter what your age in life --
Regardless of the pain or strife --
Victory is never won
unless the job is fully done
and the race completely run.
The swiftest in a race does not always win --
He may tire and slow near the end --
The stronger in a fight does not always prevail
if you feint and jab and make him flail.
You may score points and cause him to fail --
Nothing is gained by your looking back --
It may cause your pace to slack --
What lies behind you doesn't mean jake
except you must learn from every mistake
and try to never those same ones make --
The rules are the same in youth or old age --
In closing a chapter or turning a page --
Every person has his or her calling.
To fail to fulfill ir would be quite appalling,
so get in the race. It's time to quit stalling!
