I aspire to inspire before I expire,
To reach the stars fueled by desire,
To tell the truth even if it’s easier to be a liar,
They’re selling easier options, but I’m not their buyer,
To fail honorably rather than being labelled a quitter; not a trier.
The depths of the ocean could not douse my passion’s fire,
I strive, I seek, I soar no matter how dire
the situation, for I cannot be broken, I am not a crier.
