Life can be so very sweet,
Ask the fellow in the street.
A negative answer you will get from few,
For if your attitude is right
Your starís forever shining bright,
For your success is entirely up to you.
As you climb that well worn slope
Up that great pathway of hope,
A track that is trodden by us all,
But you will find that the downhill run
Towards the setting of the sun
Is a journey that not one of us can stall.
Youíll always find some folk will reach
Without a hiccup or a breach,
The summit of their very own endeavour,
While other folks will trip and fail
And stray away from the beaten trail,
Lost upon the dark byway forever.
On reading this and you should feel
That you have lost a little zeal,
Perhaps you think your race has been in vain,
If you think you canít then you will fail,
With another try success may prevail,
For the winning post is never reached without some pain.
