Run, to be a part of the race,
Conquer, else you will have nothing,
Produce, as you have people to feed,
Save, as all will mind their business when in need.
Stand tall to be unique in the crowd,
Be bold to withstand the scheming ones,
Ignore the black sheep as there are many,
Be careful with your peers, as they are your competitors.
Care for your parents, as you are their flesh and blood;
Keep an eye on your children, as there are vultures around,
Precious is your life, keep your beloved happy,
Eat healthy and sleep well to live long.
Let friends be friends, not more than that,
As you have a mind to think and decide.
Your mind remains a temple,
Until you let someone in.
Let not they become your masters,
For you may walk their path and get lost.
Stick to your mind and heart,
And give deaf ears to others.
Two faces I see, as one is the mask,
And the other is the real.
Real is sometimes too nasty,
For the mask is better than the real.
Until the desire becomes a regret,
It’s a dream that needs a push.
Push with all your strength,
But do not wait for the right time.
Some dream and never step up,
And live with the burning desire helpless.
Expect no one to kindle your dream,
For it’s you who must make a big leap.
Wait for none to climb the ladder,
For you must take it one by one.
One may go up and one may not,
Yet there’s nothing wrong to try.
It’s doesn’t matter if you reach the top,
But it does if you don’t climb.
As you grow old, may have regrets,
That you should have chased your dream.
Stand out so you are mysterious,
But be sure to be yourself.
Never whisper any secret,
For they need to be buried forever.
To be unique, may have to walk on fire,
But will make it if you hold no fear.
May have to walk all alone,
But good thoughts will always be with you.
Sharpen your claws often,
As you may see monsters on the way.
Monsters are nothing but little puppets,
That may threaten you to freeze on the way.
Hold tight to the good thoughts,
And the puppets will remain the same.
Take the straight road,
But not the short cut route.
Straight roads are often tedious,
But sure, will take you to the destination.
The weakest will throw stones at you,
But a strong one like you care for none.
When you shine in the sky,
You may see the stones below.
Stones are reminders of the lessons learnt,
So just keep in mind to boost your ego.
