    Though the road to success is as the road to salvation
    A slim and narrow road paved with tribulations,
    Difficult these obstacles are, yet not impossible to overcome
    My keys to success inner strength and application of wisdom

    I refuse to fail
    I refuse to fall
    I will prevail
    I can conquer all

    See I wasn't always in this peaceful space
    It took great efforts to get where I am at in this race.
    The race of life where I am competing against myself
    To gain, peace, prosperity good health, and increase my wealth

    I refuse to fail
    I refuse to fall
    I will prevail
    I can conquer all

    Negative thinking has no place with me and mine
    It must be positive or else it's a waste of time.
    Time wasted serves me not, it doesn't equate with my soul
    I can become a better man if I continue pushing to my goal

    I refuse to fail
    I refuse to fall
    I will prevail
    I can conquer all

    Slowing down, will not get me to where I need to be.
    There is no way that I can stop my activities
    I want to see the fruits of my labors the work of my own hands
    In less than seven years reach financial independence, to be my own man.

    I refuse to fail
    I refuse to fall
    I will prevail
    I can conquer all

    I needn't work for someone else, increase their worth and glory
    That's not what I want for myself, that's not how to end my story.
    A Strong Family, contentment of heart, peace of mind for these I toil
    Work to see my hands fruition, provided for my families future, to these remain loyal

    I've set my head straight my path I mustn't alter
    A course I've set for myself I will not falter
    My mindset on this position
    Can be answered in my affirmation
    I refuse to fail
    I refuse to fall
    I will prevail
    I can conquer all

    Very Nice Nahshon. This is a inspirational poem.


    " See I wasn't always in this peaceful space
    It took great efforts to get where I am at in this race.

    Slowing down, will not get me to where I need to be.
    There is no way that I can stop my activities

    I've set my head straight my path I mustn't alter
    A course I've set for myself I will not falter

    I refuse to fail
    I refuse to fall
    I will prevail
    I can conquer all "
