Don't Give In

Don't Give In

A Poem by Bailey C. Writing
"

My mom showed me a poem, it's called Don't Quit, I loved it. They read it at her friend's funeral. I wrote my own version. This is the original poem: http://www.thedontquitpoem.com/thePoem.htm

"
Don't give up, stay strong through it all
You may rise and you may fall
Through life's hardships, you must stand strong
Until you end where you belong
And though the world is full of sin
Don't you dare, don't you dare give in

Through every struggle, you must fight
You can make it through the night
You will wake to morning's glow
Then your tears will start to slow
You may lose, and you may win
But whatever happens, don't give in

All you need to have is faith
With it comes abundant strength
Know that you will soon get by
You'll no longer feel a need to cry
Try to put on a brilliant grin
And tell the world that you won't give in

When you feel you've lost at life
The pain is cutting like a knife
Don't forget that love cancels out hate
It will never be too late
You'll realize soon that you will win
Because you are the one who would not give in.
