Persistence when you don’t feel like it,
And all you want to do is forget.
When life hits you with a left hook,
And your only friend turns into a crook.
Persistence when that special girl says no,
And the traffic gets really slow.
When the odds are stacked against you,
And that rooster starts to coo.
Persistence when you are down for the count,
And zero it says in the account.
When you are losing the game by eight,
And they say it’s too late.
Persistence when you can’t see the reward,
And it feels like you’re overboard.
When there is the most resistance,
Persistence, persistence persistence.
