2016: ANOTHER SHOT AT GREATNESS

2016: ANOTHER SHOT AT GREATNESS
The opportunity came at a fast PACE
Much faster that my shoes, I couldn’t LACE
Had to join the wagon and run the RACE
Had I missed out, shame all over my FACE
Attitude must be right if you desire a SPACE
Everyone wants a better life, even the POPULACE
To succeed in life, one must be willing and BOLD
Competition is stiff if one intends to join the FOLD
Reception at the top is never friendly but COLD
My prayer is to breakthrough early not when OLD
Good name also important even more than GOLD
Commitment, an essential quality, I was TOLD
My past, though, offer little prospect for SUCCESS;
But my zeal and hardwork can offer me an ACCESS
To achieve my goals, and even marry a PRINCESS.
Success is a continuum, there is no time for RECESS
The wise ones amass so much wealth and build a FORTRESS
Therein they have all the fun and keep their MISTRESS
In 2016, providence is offering a shot at GREATNESS
Another chance to reverse all the RECKLESSNESS
I either grab it with all the required SERIOUSNESS
Or end up with a life of regrets and HOPELESSNESS
My prayer is for the wisdom to decipher the TIMES
And make a success in life as if singing in RHMES
