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.
