Never Give Up On Yourself


My life has been good
That I must admit
But there were times
When I did want to quit

But I always had someone
Telling me don't give in
Because when you don't give your all
That is the real sin

If you are blessed with abilities
That others do not posess
Then you must always give all
And strive to do your best

Living life is no secret
It's as plain to see as the sky
Those who are successful
Are the ones who are willing to try

And when things go wrong
As they sometimes do
That when people watch you close
To see just what you'll do

And if what they thought
About you is true
A little setback
Will never stop you

So never give up trying
Giving up is a sign of those who fail
And to give up on yourself
Is a sign of self-betrayal
