A tired and painful journey
Trying like all the rest
Giving everything there is
Striving to be the best

Drawn towards a common goal
Competing with swifter feet
Others passing on their way
Trying to avoid defeat
Fighting to win — never losing stride
Hating to lose — never losing pride

A spirit burns within the soul
Looking for the secret to success
Adrenaline generates fevered confidence
To be the best

With common fame and glory
An ignorance comes to pass
Unaware of trifle motives
Which in the end come last

Making way for the future
Which greedy hands erect
The unstable satisfaction
That foolish desires reflect…

Personal achievement — the greatest win
To finish last — a personal sin
