I have come too far,
I can’t stop.
My destination is at hand,
I must not go back to the lost Eden.

You have come too far,
You must not stop.
Too much has been invested,
Withdrawing is an abomination.

We have come too far,
We won’t stop.
We are already at mid-sea,
There is no shore of escape.

They have come too far,
Why should they stop.
Cruelty of ridicule keeps calling,
They must not respond.

The nearer we are to victory,
The louder the voice of doom.
Armour yourself with perseverance,
Feed yourself with unquenchable determination.

Remember that the pain of getting the victory,
Is always better than the pain of being defeated.
Living the dream is better than,
Wishing for the dream.
The pressure to give up,
Is always higher than the pressure to hold on.

So keep fighting,
Stop worrying,
Your troubles are expiring.
And your sorrows are fading.
As sure as heaven avoids hell.
So shall your concerns of today avoid your tomorrow.
