Keep on Keeping On
Keep on keeping on! What do we mean by that?
Perhaps the persistent griping of a little brat
Enough to drive a parent to distraction
Prompting a less than generous reaction
Keep on keeping on! is often no bad thing
When by perseverence we find it brings
The fruits of hard work and determination
An end product yielding great satisfaction
When we are tempted to throw in the towel
In the heat of play, to simply cry foul!
Keeping on amidst dark discouragement
Casting aside all that brings impairment
In days when life seems to have no point
When things conspire to disappoint
Try not to give up midst the gloom
Keep on, surely change must come soon
So what is the value of keeping on?
Hoping the victory can be won
Those who persist until the end
Justly deserve a dividend
Heed the message of that hare and tortoise
Tenaciously just hold that poise
Consistent all the way along
The prize assured for keeping on!
