When They Say You Can’t Do It

When your fire burns low and you need to keep going
When you see but a mere ten feet ahead
When all others choose comfort and you’re out in the cold
When you find success a lonely road

Carry on

When you subscribe to a different mentality
When you choose a brand new road
When life’s harshness enters your heart
And pushes you away from your foe

Carry on

When desperation sets in and doubt prevails
When your body aches and you’re out of breath
When you can’t move but know you must
When it takes all your focus to do so

Carry on

When they all say you will never get there
And they all say you should quit
When your fears tell you they are right
But your heart whispers differently

Carry on

When you feel you are running in water
When you think you’re fighting a hurricane
When thunder booms and your spirit dims
When you’re the only one on your side

Carry on

When they all laugh at your ideas
When they call you what they think you are
When they say they know you best
And that you simply lost your way

Carry on

And after their jeering and lusting
Trying to bring you back down to the ground
After they all said that you would quit
And what you want could never be found
You will have finally made it
And your heart will be strong
Fear will be your ally
And your YOU will never be gone

Because you carried on, my friend

You carried on.
