Salute your adversary like a sportsman
Shake his hand
Whether you win or lose
After the match, remember
Your opponent is your benefactor
He flexes your muscles
Giving you a tough tussle
You know where you stand
With your mastery of self
In whichever field 
You face your competition 
It is a test and challenge
So thank you adversary 
Maybe you need to master more patience
Develop more stamina
Improve your style & skill
Be more focused 
Strengthen your will
Take consensus of space to grow
You have incentive for more growth
So never hate or loathe
Your opponent or adversary
Thank him, admire him
Salute him
Next when you meet him
You won’t go insane, in jealousy or fear
Treat him like a peer 
Life is sportsman spirit
Your adversary is an essential part of the tournament 
Win or lose, don’t confuse
Your opponent for an enemy.
