The Competition

by dawnvalley

Swimming in the viscous fluid, With your white cell and a thin tail, You are 0 now, You're the first one to get out from that cave.

Running over the grass in your backyard With your friends keeping up with you from behind, You are 5 now, You're finally the first to reach that fences.

Playing games in the arcade, With your hands mashing all of the buttons, You are 9 now, At last, you've beaten the high score.

Step by step, marching forward in the soccer field, With the ball carried by your feet, You're 13 now, Score a goal to win this match

Reading chapters by chapters from your textbook, With your head until it burns, You're 18 now, Study hard is your only option.

Look right and left to see the other smart students, The insecurities are building up right now, You're 22 now, The struggle for career finally coming up.

Reports and meeting's schedules, That's the only things that you can see, You're 26 now, Your wage raises as your performance does.

Seeing couples holding hands, You see your hands without a ring, You're 31 now, Search for a partner or you will be lonely.

Who will tell the tale of your success? The thought of that drives you crazy. You're 36 now, You raise your kids for your legacy.

Confront your boss in his office, You deserve that promotion right now, You're 43 now, Need to have that position before the others mock you.

Run and run and run and run, Making sure you were there on the first place, You're 48 now, Thinking you're the winner of this competition.

You passed that finish line. You looked up to the sky with your proud face. You looked back to see the other losers behind you.

But no one was there.

This life has never been a competition between humans.

This life has never been a competition between humans. Happiness is not something that can be rushed.

This life has never been a competition between humans. Happiness is not something that can be rushed. The only enemy in this competition is yourself.

This life has never been a competition between humans. Happiness is not something that can be rushed. The only enemy in this competition is yourself. And in the end, you won't even know whether you've won or not.
