    If you excel at anything

    then be prepared

    to face envy and hatred

    from those are not so blessed.



    To reign supreme in competition

    is to stand alone

    gold is a lonely metal

    and usually hidden from man.



    We are taught to excel

    but we are seldom told

    of the great and difficult

    burden we shall be forced to bear.



    When a friend is beaten

    he becomes an enemy

    better to take second place

    and keep the friend.
