Try Harder - Poem by Vera Sidhwa

Try As I May

Try as I may, it wouldn't work out,
As I worked and worked till it would.
I tried so hard to make it work,
But try as I may, it wouldn't work out.

I stopped trying now, I really did.
It didn't matter a bit,
Wherever things may go.
I didn't even want to know.

I gave up completely now.
I couldn't get it done.
But somehow now,
It all worked out.
