Don't Give Up


Life gave you another opportunity
so just make the most of it
giving up is never the solution
to solving any of your problems

If you come across a dead end road
make a u-turn and head into a new direction
life has its ways of teaching a few lessons

Don't quit when life gets rough
you have fallen from the top
understand that it become tough
when you decide to throw in the towel

Don't give up, stand up in fight
I know it's easy to just walk away
You've had enough of them nights
where you couldn't go another day
quitters never win
it's best for you to stay

just stick it out and see it through
If you seek to win, face the challenges
that have presented itself to you
life is a battle, success goes to those
who fought hard until the very end

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
