Winners Never Quit - Poem by Lenore Lee

I met a man once who was clever and witty,
He could make up a story in a jiffy,
He told me he wrote a horror book,
But it got rejected after one look,
And I said:
Please do as you dream, I implore,
Find a different publisher that’ll like your lore,
Because quitters never win.

I met a little girl once who was kind and cute,
She used to do ballet but she got the boot,
Said she loved dancing but wasn’t talented,
She had no grace is what she said,
And I said:
Try again and you’ll be the best,
Don’t give up and you’ll be impressed,
Because quitters never win.

I met an elderly couple once who were in love,
They wanted to marry but didn’t have the shove,
They believed that a ceremony would make them ridicule,
And that they’d be known as old fools,
And I said:
Why should age stand between your fallen star?
You should be proud to show off who you are,
Because quitters never win.

Now I’m in a struggle to win my dream,
Everything is confusing and not as it seems,
But I know everything will turn out okay,
As long as I go hard every day,
Because I say:
Dreams can be won if you don’t quit on them,
You’ll win if you’re brave enough to balance on the hem,
Because quitters never win but winners never quit.
