When some are born

To be leaders

Other become

Their followers;

Some are mighty

And conquer the power

While others fail

And disappear.

To reach their goals

Some work too hard

Others sit and idle

This is not good;

If we don’t walk

Hand in hand

One will destroy

What we build.

When one struggle

To live his dream

The idle person

Criticizes of him;

But you should work hard

To be someone

For gossipers

Don’t pay attention.

Without hard work

There is no success

You can’t shine

Without critics;

Others condemn you

When you’re working

To polish your work

It is very helping.

To do anything

Have faith in yourself

Others will watch you

And have confidence;

Do not be afraid

To try new things

And make improvement

When there are comments.

Every beginner

Will be tasted

On every step

He will be tempted;

Someone who believes

That he will succeed

Will run his race

Until the end.

There is success

In every way

For life’s rules

If we obey;

To receive new ideas

If we open our minds

Life has in store

Big rewards for us.
