Try Try Again

In those times of trouble,
Which many I have had,
Sometimes I ask my mum,
Sometimes I ask my dad
Sometimes I ask my friends,
Sometimes to God I pray,
Sometimes I hope for a better life,
Hope for a better day.

In those times of trouble,
However difficult they come
I really try my hardest,
Albeit the battles never won
Wars wage on without me,
But I face others on my own
For the greatest wars I’ve ever fought ,
Have been battled all alone.

I’ve never been a great man,
But great things I have seen,
Bravery and courage,
And uniform pristine.

In those times of hardship,
Lots of things I tend to miss,
But not of food and beverage,
No, more important things than this.

Those times when all seems empty,
For I have nothing, not a grain,
I’ve been betrayed,
I’ve been deserted,
But I…
Try,
Try,
Again!!!
