Everyone Competes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Even a fanatic,
Can not stop the dance.
Even a fanatic,
Chooses with a chance...
A direction.
Before inspecting it.
Knowing not...
If what's ahead has benefits.

Even a fanatic,
May have no rhythm.
Even a fanatic,
May be forgiven.
For having no beat,
With two left feet.
And...
Even a fanatic,
May have no rhythm.
Even a fanatic,
May be forgiven.
For having no beat,
With two left feet.
And...
Even a fanatic,
Can not stop the dance.
Even a fanatic,
Chooses with a chance...
A direction.
Before inspecting it.
Knowing not...
If what's ahead has benefits.
Or if prepared and well equipped.
Yet...
Even a fanatic,
Can not sit.
And appears unfit and fidgets.
Even though considered misfit.

Yes...
Even a fanatic,
May have no rhythm.
Even a fanatic,
May be forgiven.
For having no beat,
With two left feet.
And...
Even a fanatic,
May have no rhythm.
Even a fanatic,
May be forgiven.
For having no beat,
With two left feet...
Because everyone competes,
In a life...
That moves on.
With or without rhythm given.

Because everyone competes,
In a life...
That moves on.
With or without rhythm given.

Because everyone competes,
In a life...
That moves on.
