Against Wind

Make it easy. Do it simple
Just pray for God to bless
Love colleagues & friends
Surely gain a higher success

Do it now, don't delay it
Do it again, day by day
Get that job, reach the top
Not impossible, just try

Do advise every friend
Shiny future comes at end
Do your best. Now get rid
Of any weakness, at any wind
