When Other People Doubt You
When other people doubt you and you are low in self esteem
Do not give up on yourself just follow on your dream
For many the road to success is uphill all of the way
You may feel down at present but you too will have your day.
Your failed attempt at success has left you feeling down
But many must know of failure just for one to know renown
You must try that bit harder in order to succeed
That extra bit of will to win is all that you do need.
Though there is great joy in victory and sadness in defeat
You cannot be a winner if you do not compete
And you cannot be a failure if you have tried your best
If you gave it your everything when you were put to the test.
To the winner goes the accolades and victory is always sweet
And though there is disappointment there can be honour in defeat
The honour of being winner by one better than you denied
But you can feel proud of your effort since your very best you've tried.
