It's my mindset to keep going
Like the tortoise won the racing
Being slow and steady throughout
Though slow I go steady devout
Running firm towards my target

I'm proud never losing my game
Unlike the hare that slept with shame
That to win focussed at my goal
To give my best of poetic role
It's my mindset
