Men who carry their mountains,
find it hard to forge ahead.
Men who climb their mountains
clearly see what lies ahead.
Stop fueling your fondest fears,
take one day at a time.
Men who tend their tough tears,
often commit common crimes.
Life is not and will not be fair,
embrace both pains and gains.
As eagles soar in pathless air,
explore life’s unknown terrains.
Pray, when the going gets tough,
panic is the magnet of defeat.
Brace up when the road is rough
and strive to stay on your feet.
victory is not given, earn it.
Our soul can sail through strife…
if we learn never to quit.
