For To Be High Achievers


In life, sports and business one does have to say
That of winners and losers we hear of every day
The self same old stories we've been hearing for years
Joy and laughter for some and for the others tears
For the success in achievement most humans compete
For to be best in their neighbourhood and best on their street
For to be best in your Country and best Worldwide
'Tis all about ego and 'tis all about pride
Your attitude to life as to others tells of the person you are
Some do take their love of self that bit too far
Of life's winners and losers we read of and hear of every day
For to be high achievers we've been raised that way.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
