When I Feel Like Giving Up (by Tess)

Take the temptation of your tears

Combined with the crisis point of the levees

Soon to be broken in your life.

Make this, not the distraction,

But the focus – the mirrors

So to speak.

The opportunity to tease

The fears that creep,

Trying vainly to destroy the satisfaction

Of your success;

This is the key to keeping

One step beyond

Failure

And turning weeping

To Joy.
