It TAkes A while

You can only try so hard before your efforts make you fall;
Don't stop to rest, for that is when the pain begins to hurt.
Go spend your time, your life, giving your only and your all,
And don't be disappointed when you end up in the dirt.
 
I thought you'd know:
It takes a couple tries,
So keep trying --
The journey only needs hard work and a smile
And getting there will take a while.
 
A million voices say that its OK to let it go,
But you know how it feels to know you didn't do your best.
And though a hundred times you'll wish to live without such far-fetched goals,
Just keep in mind that this way, you won't have to reinvest.
 
It's hard, I know:
To take so many tries
But still, keep trying --
All you really need is hard work and a smile
And getting there will take a while.
