Always Yield

Yutang Lin

Worldlings fight with one another over profits in sight;
Even when acquired what could one truly hold for sure?
Who knows which step taken could last in the long run?
Seeing unpredictability rules one always yields to others.


Competing as if it really matters; when acquired what would ultimately be the case? Winning or losing at one time; situations change in a blink. Who knows the consequences of this step? Why need to thrust forward to make sure of getting there? Future is unpredictable to you and me; comprehending uncertainty of results one would always yield to others.
