In the sea of life where trials abound,
Problems and tests haunt you like a hound.
Strive to have a mind that is ultimately sound
While keeping your feet down on the ground.
You may not be the most intelligent man,
But you can do your best under the sun.
Endure each trial until you’re done.
Give your best effort until you have none.
For after the wild waves all settled down.
In you will emerge a character that is sound.
For you did your best to overcome without a frown.
That is why you deserve to have the crown.
For the sea of life is not just about your skills to sail.
Instead, it is about the direction that you hail.
Many times you might stumble, fall, and fail.
Just remember to keep track on life’s best trail.
