If you’re not frightened, how challenging is it?
Those moments when your heels decide to dig in
Everything’s locked u and you think you might split;
It’s best to take these losses on the chin.
If the passion within you is still alive,
The opportunity is still there to thrive.
Dig deep for answers or consult someone wise;
Turning away too soon is where the dream dies.
