Never Stop Trying
Author: Ashley


It may be hard to follow your dreams
as wise thoughts flow away in streams
regrettful actions interrupt your path
evenly trying to build up positive emotion
as your feelings begin to thrash
at this point you say fuck it and give up
on everything you desired; an idle stray
you are; no one you could have inspired
self-esteem has stooped down low
vivid illusions march in a row
the mirrior is shattered
the picture is torn
somehow, you wake up with an indifferent mourn...

You are relieved of depression and guilt.
an esteem castle has now been rebuilt
wonder what has changed you in this way
god has made a statement
