Oh struggle, my true friend and enemy

Oh how you ruthlessly hurt and help us

Oh my hated foe and valued ally

Oh what a paradox you are thus

 

 

You give us both triumph and tragedy

You bring profit and devastating loss

You are defeat and cherished victory

There can be no gain without prudent cost

 

 

You make and unmake all those who are bold

Some praise and others curse your very name

Many do not try for that is how they’re told

For all those who fail you are their very blame

 

Like many you are my friend and enemy

I wouldn’t have it any other way.
