Money, wealth, praise and fame,
These seem to be our goals in life,
But eventually we will regret who we became,
If there’s nothing else towards which we want to strive.
Know that we weren’t put here in vain,
God created this world as a test,
It’s nothing more than a game,
To see whose deeds are best.
So let’s run as hard as we can in this race,
Let us not drop behind,
Or even slacken our pace,
And let us always keep in mind…
That no one is bound to stay
And we can leave this life any time,
No one is promised another day,
Or knows when he’ll see the finish line.
So train yourself with fear and belief,
And never stop running, my friend,
So on that day when most of mankind is stricken with loss and grief,
You’ll be the first to reach the end…
