Quick Poem for a Girl I Respect

At the end of the day,
all I can do is push away from my desk and say,
“I did the best I could.”
I can look myself in the mirror and be proud of what I see.
I can say, “I gave it all that I have.”
I can say, “I took a chance.”
and, “I tried.”

Not everything works….but not everything works for a reason.
This is why we try again.
This is how we train….this is where we get the strength to stand
and become better.

I have always said I love the underdog.
And this is why…
I respect anyone that will not be held down.

I know there is good in me. I know there is good in the world.
And even if I fail or fall down,
at least I know I made you proud,
and that’s all that matters.

There…..now go say this to yourself in the mirror
But next time, I need you to believe it
