If you…

If you are strong,
Don’t think it’s everybody
Who will hail you;
Some will hail you;
Some will castigate you;
If you are successful
Don’t think it’s everybody
Who will be happy about it;
Some will be happy;
Some will be angry instead;
If you become rich,
Don’t think it’s everybody
Will look at you with good eyes;
Some will do;
Some will not;
If you start making a name for yourself,
Don’t think it’s everybody
Who will like it;
Some will like it;
Some will hate it;
If your star starts shining,
It’s not everybody
Who will celebrate it;
Some will celebrate it;
Some will spoil the celebration;
If you shine and sparkle,
Don’t think it’s everybody
Who will like you;
Some will like you;
Some will hate you.
Such is life;
Many will be for you
If you are nothing;
If things are not moving for you;
But will turn against you when they are.
