If it’s ever a road to travel or a trip to take you’ve got to do it boldly
You can’t always play it cool and let things run its course
Sometimes it takes a fight, with some exchange of blows to triumph
Some victorious are won by pure conviction while others are won by simply being a fierce warrior.
You don’t want to be left hanging high and dry at the end of the day
You need accolades to prove your efforts in battle
It’s pointless to enter a tournament just to tell others you had the experience
Reach for the goal, the peak the prize.
Stay ahead of the pack and be the pace setter
You don’t want to be bunched in with the crowd as you approach that final lap
If by chance you’re overtaken remain in striking distance
And as the race progresses dig deep and press forward
Then on the final lap you can strive for victory knowing full well you have given your all.
At journey’s end you want to be successful and happy
Not everyone will be, but you can surely be
Just as a builder constructs a bridge to last through the ages
You ought to direct your life so that your dreams don’t crumble
It can be a disheartening feeling whenever your efforts have failed
