Stay competitive!

If you started together;
But today,
You are world’s apart,
And the other outruns you,
Stop and ask:
“How did it happen?”
Ours is a competitive world;
Those who sleep
When they should be up,
Are outrun;
You can’t afford to go
To sleep
When others are toiling;
Gird your loins
And work;
And if your hands bleed,
You don’t stop.
You keep working;
That is how you get ahead;
That is how
You stay competitive
In a world
That’s highly competitive.
