Last man Standing

First man standing versus last man standing.
It doesn’t matter if you are living in a humble hut;
Just make sure it is built on the hills of honour.
It doesn’t matter if you are not impressing others;
Just makes sure you express yourself beyond borders.
It doesn’t matter if your purse is not pompous;
Just make sure your passion and purpose is not porous.
It doesn’t matter if your past was painful,
Just make your present peaceful and your prospect powerful.
It doesn’t matter if your sins are like scarlet,
Just be soaked in soberness and seek for serenity.
It doesn’t matter if you have flaws and falls…
Just have faith and focus to fight on and move forward.
It doesn’t matter if you are slow, just go steady.
Success is not all about speed but significance.
It doesn’t matter if your foundation is faulty,
Fix it if you can or find another ground and forge ahead.
It doesn’t matter if your foes are fiery and forceful;
Just make sure you have friends who are ever faithful.
It doesn’t matter if your forefathers failed;
Don’t be a fairytale for future folks…to read.
It doesn’t matter who is leading, if you are still in the race,
Put your heart on winning and increase your pace.
God bless you.
The best is not always to be the first man standing but the last man standing!
