RULES OF THE GAME

One at a time is the step of life Take a leap when you get to a pit Else, down the pit you'll dive When you resurface your bearing is lost. Slow and steady is the race of life Never look back 'cos it’s lost and gone When you meet setbacks, make a dive Bypass it never leaving your lane. As bold as the hawk you should be Your eyes as sharp as the eagle's So all that walk your lane you can see And promptly treat according to size. Never overlook anything on your way Never take those sweet spots the way they are They're never the best places if I may say The regrets in loving them is not always far. Never try to side-step any step Never run away from the difficult spot The next step is as important as the last step Ignore it and all is lost. As you strive to finish up the race Be mindful of those on the way offering you water Some kinds of water can set you ablaze Remember there is nothing as late as later. These are the rules of the game Keep these rules And you'll rise to fame Aside you, the winner will be no one else.
