Born To Win



Silence is held strong in our soul
There is many things which we don't know
The life we choose is the way we live
The selflessness is in the way we give
The mountains we climb to reach the top
The steps we missed which let us drop
Life's harmony in which we gladly receive
And the one we thoughtlessly choose to deceive
This way of human life is all well known
None of us creatures is ever left all alone
In this life I see much sadness around
With my feet standing flat on the ground
I see no need for any of us to fly high
I cannot see us really touching the sky
Individual reach is all any of us can do
And our life's reach is up to me and you
When I look back over where my life has been
Thats when I know I was born to win!
