Priorities

A good football team
studies the competition
by looking at game film
of the opponents mission.
Looking for their tendencies
and we too face competition
which is anything that holds
us back from our own mission.
Things like fear, despair, and hate.
So, study the film called life
to come up with your great plans
for your tomorrows as you strife.
Think with skillful accuracy
and make the needed adjustment
to be in a position for success
using your remarkable judgment.
Develop that untapped potential;
the amazing abundance of talents.
The abilities you have never ever used
by approaching each day with valiance
Each day provides another occasion
to try something never ever tried before
as you appreciate the lessons of the past
looking for opportunities to open a new door.
You can relate the normally unrelated
and see usual things in unusual ways.
You have a passion for new discoveries
As you set out in all your future days.
