walk good and good duppy follow you: Ms. Lewis BennetE

how can say i never?
how can they judge what i am
who are they to say am not it
are to judge my whole life work as just not good enough
you gave me hope and the minute i decided to try you knocked me down
come again they saY,your just too young and unexperience for this kind of play
i broke away into a thousans shades of grey for now id lost the dream i held it died and started to decay. whole heartedly i tried but when the refusal came i had to die its been two years since now am back and ready to win. wow they say as i stood where victory lay.

its about who enters a competition when they were young and lost and were crushed by the judges comments in poem he discribes them as "they" he re-enters the competiton when he was older and won

I love the ending and the part about decay. This was short but still powerful keep it up!
