Why did you give up?

Why did you give up?

One inch from the diamond

In the caves of darkness and joyless work

Through all the soot and tears you’ve been through

Why did you give up?

Just one inch away…

Just one more hit away…

Did you think that things won’t go your way?

Did you think your instinct was only play?

Did you think that it was fruitless before you sowed the seed?

So you gave up and didn’t proceed

To get the diamond freed

So your life abundant be

So you can stand proud because you succeed

In never giving up life’s game

So life will always be the same

Because you gave up

That’s insane…
