Oh pitiful me, what the heck this time?
My journey’s an endless mountain to climb.
Being pushed back down so many times,
When shall I reach the summit that chimes?
Just when I think I’ve reached the crest,
I stumble and fall, failing the test.
It's hard to keep the hope alive,
When every step is hard, I strive.
I wonder if I’ll ever thrive,
Or if success is just beyond my drive.
What strength do I have if all I gain is nought,
Each time I raise up, I am bound to be caught.
I’ve endured so much pain, the strain is tiresome,
The struggle brings me down, making me lonesome.
Should I retreat and just give up,
And accept failure as my final cup?
Some say failure is a stepping stone,
On a way to success, that's not alone.
At this moment, I don’t know, I just want to cry,
I can’t see the heights of tomorrow, making me shy.
For I’ve been cast back down again,
Once more, am I starting in vain?
They say I’ve got God’s power to see it through,
And with each fall, I still believe it's true.
The climb is so darn steep and long,
And the journey is tough, but I'll stay strong.
I hope I’ll find the courage to be bold,
And conquer every obstacle that's cold.
