Comparison is a game, a trap we often fall,
As we measure our worth against others, we feel small.
But the truth is, each of us is on our own path,
And our journey’s unique, a story meant to last.
We look at others, see their success and fame,
And feel we’re lagging, playing a losing game.
But what we don’t see is the work they put in,
Their struggles and hardships, the battles they win.
We forget that life is a marathon, not a sprint,
And each step we take is progress, a milestone hint.
We must learn to appreciate our own journey,
With all its ups and downs, its moments blurry.
The timing of our life is not in our hands,
But we can choose how we respond to life’s demands.
We can trust the universe, have faith in the unknown,
And know that everything happens for a reason, shown.
So, let’s stop comparing and embrace our own path,
Accepting the challenges and joys that it hath.
For comparison is a game you can never win,
But learning to appreciate our journey is the ultimate win.
Life is a journey that must be travelled no matter how bad
the roads and accommodations.– Oliver Goldsmith
