“Never Give Up”

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
And the road you tread seems always to be uphill.
When the funds are low, and the debts are too high
You wish to smile, but in depth sadness makes you cry
Remain steadfast, as your strength, will make it right.

This is not a poem to rhyme, to resonate memories of pain,
But words for those of us, who suffer silently, within decay
Of dreams unfulfilled, memories of love and too much loss.
Belief within our hearts, silent tears and words, each day
Imbedded within our souls and spirit, we remain true, and stay.

Never abandon your dreams, or memories of wishes and life’s fruit
Stay strong for you, when weariness, from swimming against the tide
Often wears you down, to a black emotional state, with loss of truth
And the tiredness, with ongoing battles, to rise above, seems lost forever
But you will return to your unique self, determined and will once again shine.

Pursue your dreams, your goals, and your absolute reason to live
To make this a better world, for you, and for me, for your own beliefs
That all will be right in the end, you reaching your own pinnacle, dreams
Which you held steadfast and true, through adversity and much sadness
Though you will continue to live, maybe within silence, but reign in peace.
