I’m just like them.
Ask me why.
Because they refuse to quit.
They won’t stop trying.
They believe in a fresh start
Find strength in hard places
Bounce like rubber hits the sidewalk
Tick on like the second-hand on a clock
Turn failure into the next motivation for success
Because they push open the groaning doorway of obstacles
to reach the vast field of hope beyond the threshold.
