Never Give Up

By Natalie Cribari

The time has come, the day is near
To face the things I’ve learned to fear.
I’ve come this far, I’ve tried this hard
But leave it to me to draw the wrong card.
I’ve dreamt this day for months and weeks
But in my ear the devil speaks:
He criticizes the things that I have heard
And brings me down with every word.
But I CAN accomplish what I ought
For freedom of addiction is what I sought.
NO MATTER WHAT they tell me
I will rise to the top!
And with fear fueling motivation,
I will be unable to be stopped!
I will not quit until victory is whole.
Only then, will I have cleansed my soul.
