There are times in life
When the days seem hard
We are wiling to succumb
When the troubles embark

The worries keep growing
They put us to test
We are about to give up
When we should give it our best

We pull up our courage
And look around our space
Miss the cheer leaders
Who vanished at our face.

We try hard to persist
And fight against the odds
Burn the midnight oil
And give our best shots

So close to the horizon
Still miss it by a chance
Fate seems a nemesis
Playing the Devil’s dance

Life thwarts us with failures
And successes to make us proud
With one rule to Remember
There’s a lining to every cloud

It’s just a fun test game
Where God is our coach
His delays are not his denials
It’s the golden way to approach.
