Never Count Me Out

Updated on January 8, 2011

I don't stay knocked down

can never count me out

If my life rains pressure

I still survive the drought

Where does it come from

Its all of this doubt

I'm shooting for what's green

Just like a water sprout

The big day of victory

I always feel its near

Why can't it happen faster

as I shed a single tear

I dream of the moment

My strength is a spear

I relieve any opponent

when the clouds are clear


Peace in my flaws

I strive to do so well

on right side of the law

Time will only tell

A check on reality

I grip it like a claw

No hunting of my sanity

I've battled with the paws

Institute of Struggle

I'm an undergraduate

My health and finances

try to keep' em adequate

I speak from the heart

as I am a laureate

Writing for me is therapeutic

Where's my doctorate


The power of words

I shout as a choir

I am an open book

Take a look at the memoir

I'm true to the seed

Vertical as a rook

in every page I bleed

I'm hung by the hook

My mind steady racing

I don't like to worry

The floor I'm pacing

on stage of oratory

To defend my legacy

I am a fighter up

When I make history

Its each lighter up
