work hard

Determination

Put the excuses aside,
take setbacks in stride,
and don’t abide by or hide
behind the infinite lies.
Don’t be easily lead blind
or left behind, and remind
yourself of the hard times.
Strive always to better lives,
and always apply your mind.
As they say, aspire to inspire,
And don’t be afraid to perspire
or tire as you ascend the spire.
