Rejection


I was focused in school
It lead me astray
I thought about it all the time.
I had no real idea
So, I asked myself why.

I did everything right
So, I asked why?
I didn't believe the answer
So, I kept trying.
I have faith in God
So, I kept praying.

I'd love a chance with you miss
so, I kept saying.
Me and you together
As i kept dreaming.
I thought I was distinctive
As I was thinking

Rejection four times, that was no dream
