The word you’ve heard before.
It’s one ingrained into your brain.
You try and you try.
However, your hopes and dreams
pass you by.
You ponder and reflect.
Then, you drift into a sea of despair.
What are you to do?
Maybe, you close your eyes and dream.
Or, you give up.
Giving up is too easy.
What does that say about you?
What do you think about yourself?
They say nothing ventured is nothing gained.
Pick up your last bit of hope
and lift yourself out of the sea of despair.
