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.

      I think that maybe a "I'm sorry," once in a while will help.

      You're so right. Thank you presenting it so forcefully. Life is full of competition and sometimes it goes too far.

      I think it a great paradox that we can compete with sportsmanlike conduct with all these different countries and yet, our governments cannot get along. I think your poem states very nicely what must be done. Voted up.

      Nicely written poem. Many areas of life are one big competition. Hit many buttons and voted up.
