The Struggle

Success is not an easy stroll
it never was nor ever shall
On purpose, if the chips are down
needs icy backbone spine canal

Willpower won’t be all you need
more how you walk a country mile
Always striving for a better way
on any given crooked stile

Receiving every trial and let-down
as much more than lessons learned
Fixing all those broken hearts
getting over being spurned

Overnight is insufficient time
for building sound defence
It will not sustain momentum
or give sufficient recompense

In the end when you look back on it
success was what you gained
By shrugging off the give in calls
moving onwards self contained
