I WILL PERSIST

I will persist until I succeed!

I was not delivered unto this world in defeat,
nor does failure course in my veins.

I am not a sheep waiting,
to be prodded by my shepherd.

I am a lion and I refuse to walk,
to talk,
to sleep with the sheep.

I will not hear those who weep and complain,
for their disease is contagious.
Let them join the sheep.

The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

I will persist until I succeed!
