The game of life must be played as per the rules.
PLAYING THE GAME


Why should I be frustrated
If I am not admired?
None can always get what is
So ardently desired.

Life consists of give and take;
It is a two way street.
Sometimes we just go ahead
And sometimes we retreat.

Whether I get praise or hate,
Does not matter at all.
I must walk the duty’s path
Without stumble or fall.

When the Day of Judgment comes
He’ll write against my name
Not whether I won or lost
But how I played the game.
