Don’t kill yourself.

Don’t kill yourself;
Fighting to be the best.
When you are the best,
What next?
When you win,
What next?
When you become rich,
What next?
When you become the president,
What next?
When you date all the women you know,
What next?
When you take yourself so high,
What next?
When you pass and everybody bows,
What next?
When you talk and everybody applauds,
What next;
When others sing your praises,
What next?
When you talk and everybody trembles,
What next?
All is vanity;
That is the truth;
You need to take it easy;
You mustn’t be the first;
And of course,
You shouldn’t be the last either.
What you should strive to do
Is your best;
That is lofty;
That is enough;
Don’t kill yourself
Fighting to be the best
Because it is all vanity.
