FALL   DOWN   -   GET   UP!

Have you tried and tried your hardest,
To learn some new thing;
In spite of all your effort,
No satisfaction…did it bring?

And, how about all the times,
You tried so hard to please;
Yet, they were never happy,
You couldn’t please a single one of these.

In sports…you’d like to excel,
Still…it wasn’t meant to be;
Or maybe you just needed more practice,
Then…you’d be like most…including me!

Now, if indeed we quit,
When we were down and out;
Then…we’d know defeat,
Yes…we’d know just what that was all about.

Or…we could take up the challenge,
Pick ourselves up and go on;
For practice makes perfect,
And, the pain of losing would be gone.

Don’t quit…and accept defeat,
Give it another try…then another;
Losers never win,
And, winners pursue each endeavor.

Give it all you’ve got;
Accept every challenge,
Give it all you’ve got!


It doesn’t matter how many times you fall down…
Only how many times you get back up!
