Persevere

You have not failed when you can try again
Tomorrow always brings another day
You only get to pleasure through the pain
To learn by your mistakes, the only way

A single slip must not dissuade your course
But each success must bring its own reward
A failure only serves to reinforce
The pleasure that you know each time you’ve scored

The days you win are yours to make you proud
Don’t take away achievements you have earned
The pain of failure cannot be allowed
To make you think successes should be spurned

I’m sad because today you could not win
Tomorrow let another win begin!
