"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. " -Albert Einstein

Sweat beats down my back
Attempting to cool me
I try my hardest
With all my strength
To push my world
A massive bolder
Up and around the world
Slipping and messing up
I try my hardest
With all my strength
Each day altering, building
Better stronger muscles
As my heart rocks inside
My chest, burning
I try my hardest
With all my strength
to make it
But too often...
The sun doesn't rise
And im left in the dark
To push alone.

This was a really awesome passionate poem I absolutely loved it. It was very powerful and deep within meaning, I caught the just behind it and I can relate because sometimes it's as if I'm all alone. But enough of me, you did an excellent job with this I look for more of your writings.
