Defeated

Down and lost

You feel like quitting.

I see your pain, though you hide it.

Yet even in moments when everyone lost hope on you

You persevere

Move on

And learn.

Every moment of sadness

You reach for that glimpse of glory.

You are the best when you are defeated

Because it is in those moments, you show that you can still shine.

The End Of A Tiring Week

I am tired
I am beat
I am literally dragging my feet

Despite the chaos
I try to remain calm and have fun
And tell the world, no I’m not yet done

The struggle is real
As real as can be
But I tell my troubles, no you can’t beat me

I hold my head high
Keep it above water
And I keep in mind that I shouldn’t falter

My energy is being drained
But I will not quit
So this mantra is on repeat,
“I can and I will”
And I believe I will……I will get back on my feet

I Bet

I bet you didn’t think I’d make it

I bet you thought I was going to stay down…down…down

Not anymore and never again

I’m stronger than you think I am

More powerful than imagined

More determined than ever

 

No backing out

I’ll face the storm

Because I bet at the back of your mind

You thought I was going to quit

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

 And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–

 You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,

It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up,

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out–

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
