Life is a Race

When the signal is given,
everyone steps on the line,
ready to start the journey of life.
Some focus on the goal,
striving to be the best.
Another moves on without care,
looking as others pass him by.
Many even cut corners,
cheating their way through the race.
Some may pay dearly for this.
Others may scale through without reprove.
Some may even run with speed,
but break the rules of the game.
These have no reward at the end.
So run your race with care,
to end well and get your reward.
