Every morning in Africa, when the Sun rises, a deer awakens
knowing it has to outrun the fastest lion, or be hunted to death
Every morning in Africa, when the Sun rises, a lion awakens
knowing it has to outrun the slowest deer, or be starved to death
It does not matter whether you are a deer or a lion
When the sun rises, better be running at your best
You only live once!
Kudos to whoever came up with it! Very simple, but very thoughtful!
Looks like a very popular motivational poem, almost everyone has it on their blogs :) but I could not find the poet’s name.
I came across this one when searching for something else, and could not resist sharing it! more than sharing its just a reality check for me, when I get drifted away into my dreamland, because in reality, that is all life is, if you are not the hunter, you are the hunted, and either ways if you want to continue living you got to run, either chasing someone or escaping from someone, but you got to run! Morning walks do not help any more, at least not in this competitive jungle, whether deer or lion, to live is but to run, to race and to win!
