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.
