I’ve tried my best

Tried to climb the mountain

To reach that crest

I gave it my all

 

I’ve tried my best

Sweated blood and tears

But I failed the test

And started to fall


But what I hated wasn’t the falling

What I hated wasn’t the fear

What I hated was the name calling

That I found too hard to bear

 

Oh you haven’t worked hard enough

Oh you haven’t tried

You’ve got to toughen up

On the inside


Where were you when I trained

Where were you when I hurt

Where were you when I was pained

With a face full of dirt

 

Where were you when I laughed

Where were you when I cried

But here you are with a slap to the face

Saying I haven’t tried


But I’ve tried



The Icognito Writer

I am not who I say I am but who my writing says I am; my characters define me. Like puppets in a play, they tell you who pulls the strings. I'm not who I say I am; I'm who you think I am.
