Those who can, should. Those who can’t, should try anyway.
Why do I even try?
I could do it until the day I die
But no results will I obtain
No matter how much I strain
My blood and sweat by gallons shed
But through them no crown will adorn my head
I tried to persevere against the odds
But now I see it’s me against the gods
For no success will ever be mine
Whether I go alone or wait in line
So what then is the point of trying
Saying it builds character is simply lying
Why then do I pick myself up?
Why couldn’t I just be a lazy pup?
There is a core of iron in this fleshy frame
I didn’t ask to play on the hardest settings this game
But my daddy told me hard work pays off
And at those words I could never scoff
Sure it might take me a while
And on more than once it’s left me tasting bile
But I will continue to fail as much as needed
Not once for an easier life have I pleaded
So I’ll fail and fail and fail some more
I will wail and cry and even roar
But not ever shall I give up the chase
So I’ll try and try until I win this race!
Thank you for listening.
