What Life Is


Life is a test
Whether work or rest
And to reach at the top
You must give your best

Life is a battle
Whether normal or fatal
And to be a winner
You must go and rattle

Life is a clash
Whether old or fresh
And to be a star
You must make a mesh

Life is an ascent
Whether thorny or descent
And to be a victorious
You must have the talent

Life is a race
Whether stroll or chase
And to be the first
You must show a pace

    It was a show of race....of unexpected pace....Life is a race
    Whether stroll or chase
