The Fact That I Tried

Looking forward
But is that right?
I have two options
To fight or flight

If I flee
From what is to come
I’ll never know
If I lost or I won

Fight is the way
There’s no other choice
I want that reason
To be happy, rejoice

Look in the mirror
And know that I tried
No matter how many times
I’ve fallen and cried

The journey make be long
The road twists and turns
The failures are hard
Sometimes it burns

But I know that one day
I can look myself in the eyes
And be satisfied with
The fact that I tried

    At the end of the day, you need to know you did everything you could: and you are doing everything you can. I really hope that you get your wish in the end, sending lots of love your way. Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x

    Lovely poem Vicky. I have a cup at home that reads ‘the only real failure is the failure to try’ and I think as long as we do that we van hold up our heads with pride.

    Oh this shows strength of determination. Never give up as you never know when things can happen and things can change for the better.

    I actually found this poem really uplifting. I recognise that you are unsure, but I feel great strength from it too.

    I had to fight for seven years and at times I wanted to give up. I get this completely x
