You tried your very best, but
Somehow it was not enough
In those minutes, those hours
When you had your chance to shine,
It falls apart, it comes to pieces
And dreams now hang, on the line.
All that time spent chasing stars,
Eyes set on the future you
Abandoned the present and
Now, battles fought for nothing,
You’re left wondering –
Can you still reach, what you sought?
Fallen, your greatest struggle now
Is not to catch the moon, but
Just to stay sane and hope
That tomorrow’s sun will rise,
Bright and glorious, guiding you
Away from further demise.
Yet perhaps this was meant to be,
A failure designed to show you
The frailty of an outcome, and
Teach those hungry eyes to see
That perhaps it is in other places
You’ll find joy resides.
