All Life In Competition
As soon as little brothers or sisters are born,
The children will be pushing to get the most attention
From their parents who make a choice to share their love
And increase their living space to raise a few.
As soon as a boy or girl gives out their phone number
To more than one suitor,
There will be some broken hearts
If the promises are not proven true.
And the competition becomes tough
If one flirts with the boss
To get that promotion or a raise
Greed can lead to personal loss.
And every four years
The whole world compete
For coins on a rope
Gold silver or bronze
No need to grope
In countries that consort to war
There are no winners if destruction
And loss of life account for
Ones accomplished goal
War is not a game
Yet we are all to blame
If no one changes the rules
And the plan
To come out alive
And shaking hands
At the end of the game.
And those who are the spectators
Must learn to be the wisest
To eliminate the fight
By praying for what is right
And realize there is pleasure
People get by watching
Others in competition.
