that’s okay

Some will say you can’t

Others question your choices

To make doubt set in

Some may ignore you

When you reach out for their help

It’s not theirs to give

Believe in yourself

Count on the strength of your will

And keep on trying

Once it turns around

They will stand in amazement

Success will be yours
