Play Your Hand

Life is like a deck of cards
Dealt by the hand of fate
You may get an ace or two
Or the top card may be eight
But whatever you get
Keep on with the play
Another shuffle of the cards
May bring a luckier day.

Some are Fortune's favourites
Don't envy them at all!
Do the best with what you've got,
You must either stand or fall!
Keep heading toward the goal you set
And when you've got a winning streak
Play it to the limit!
It may bring you what you seek!
But whether you get the breaks or not
Just do the best you can;
In the struggle and the striving
You'll have proved yourself ...a man!
