Persevere


Life has taught me many things
It taught me of the world and what it brings
Trials came and shared from their wealth
Wisdom that could lead to health
They taught me all the things I need to know
Like when to stop and when to go
But one lesson shines above the rest
To persevere, to finish the test
Hold fast in all you do
Don't quit until all is through
Life will throw some nasty curves
But he who stands gets what he deserves
I've learned that when you want to quit
Is when you stand, take one more hit
That's the hit that decides your fate
Whether you move on or have to wait
No matter what the trouble is
Life, love, or a simple quiz
Just push on and work it out
Keep going, that's what it's about
When you fall and shed that tear
Just remember to fight, to persevere
