Did the reward feel little?
Perhaps, felt like naught?
Do not lose heart yet.
Does your hope ebb away by the day?
Perhaps, drives you to the edge?
Do not lose the will to live—
Keep going, keep doing it;
Invest more of you in you,
Believe your all in all of you.
And this, dear one, is winning.
The one promise every tomorrow brings,
Is of new beginnings.
