Never Gonna Quit

Through the revolving doors of FCC.

In on a charge, PTR after PTR ,

 it feels like failure after failure.

But no matter how low I have been,

 they have been there

no matter how bad my actions have hurt them,

they have been there for me.

 

There have been times I have wanted to quit

 that is the God’s honest truth.

I have thought of ending it all.

But always

 my stubbornness to not quit

has always been there.

My mother and children have never quit on me.

And that is why

I stumbled out of the darkness,

cleared my mind,

put my mind together and

did not quit on them.
