Perseverance - Poem by Dillon Crawford

As you may notice I took the last line from my Mentor Bob Marley.

Perseverance
What would you run for?
Your country should be there
But that cant be all
You must go and think,
For thinking is living
But don't solely think,
You must also dream
For where would you be without hope
That one powerful force
that keeps you going on and on
You must learn the ways
To dream and think
Only then will living be achieved
Only then will you be complete
Sure, you can be alive without it
But you wont acutely live
Without dreams you are nothing
Try your hardest
and you shall prevail
Never simply walk to your goal
Run at full speed
For if you run fast
You can knock down any barricade
When you think you are there
You simply must find out
Just ask to yourself
Was it worth it?
Would I die for this job?
If you so much as think no
Then keep on going
But even if you say yes
You must never stop
Strive other paths,
Try to fix what we have left in the world
For with that you can never quit
For the people destroying it don't quit
So why should you?
Instead you should work double
Always try,
Always succeed.
Light the darkness with light.
