Never Give Up

A fire stirs deep within my soul
Earnest dreams fuel the eager blaze
Focus controls the wild combustion
A quasar of energy I hold in my gaze

The choir of naysayers stand in the way
Voices are muted to a determined heart
Blood, sweat, and tears add to my brush
As I paint my life to a work of art

Obstacles will always try to douse my fire
Smoke will arise to be a flame once more
Lessons learned can be seen in the ashes
Now I’m ready to go through the next door

Step by step blazing a trail down my path
I carry in my grasp a piece of my flaming soul
When I want to quit I look down in my hands
To see “never give up” etched on a red hot coal
