When things don’t go your way,
Will you have the courage to stay
And with gusto finish the last round
And not once surrender your ground?
Can you promise to be strong –
If all your plans go wrong,
Will you stubbornly hold on
Until all your strength is gone?
While everyone fails around you
And has their mood sober and blue,
Will you manage a hopeful smile
And tenaciously go an extra mile?
Do you swear to be true to the hustle
Even if fear paralyzes nerve and muscle,
Or the body screams for nothing but rest?
Will you still get up and give it your best?
When things don’t go your way, ever,
will you believe it’s God’s way, his plan,
and decide to quit complaints and palaver,
so he can bless you in all the ways he can?
