Thoughts were positive, dedication was absolute ;
Hopes were high, Expectations completely bare
Your enthusiasm made even the nay-sayers go mute,
Then life threw a spanner in the works, it’s just not fair.
Intentions were good, Faith was unwavering ;
You put in a lot of effort, you really did care.
But in the end all was futile and unrewarding
Because sometimes, life’s just unfair.
It was unpredictable, that small hiccup
They said the chances of failure were rare.
External factors at play, your dream they broke up.
Why, oh why does life have to be so unfair ?
