Partners vs rivals

Which is better?
To be partners
Or to be rivals?
To me,
It’s crystal clear;
To be partners is the way;
Rivalry doesn’t build;
It destroys;
But partnership builds;
We are both stronger as partners
Not as rivals;
As partners,
We support each other;
We complement each other;
We hold each other’s hand;
As rivals, we don’t;
Rivalry is unhealthy competition;
It undercuts;
It pulls down;
It tears things apart;
I love that we be partners
And not rivals;
Partnership leads to life;
Rivalry leads to death.
Shall you and I be partners?
Let’s be partners and journey together
In love and solidarity.
