Long lasting girls and guys

You are mean and opportunist
what that may probably mean?
there is an opportunity standing right in front of you
you run and so do others(like you) for it
to get it,grab it and bag it
you stumble and fall and they trample along
you are bloodied and injured
and as yet you get up and run
this time pushing and trampling others in the meelee
they are injured and they fall and you trample along
now you are pushing and pulling other by side
suddenly some guy pushes you so hard
that you fall and never get up
you get up,lick your wounds and sigh-an opportunity lost!
and then you do carry along the same lines each time you see one
depreciation is huge and you are the cause of same on others around you
you say you are young and can withstand
you do and time passes along
you soon realize that it was all rat race
and the guilt surrounds for all your sins
and you arrive at stage that is sober and mature
you age
lost is the craze
but at a cost
you have sores on body and your psche and you ache
there are many
unlike you
that reached that stage
much before your age
they had mind
to set a self set bind
based on abilities and traits
and hooking on to a stable state
they have less of scars and cost
and they seem themselves
and not like you totally lost
they are wise
and are long lasting
girls and guys.
