Edmund Hillary conquered the Everest
Doesn’t mean the rest of us lost.
Everest stays where it was before
Waiting patiently for you to overpower.
Testing time for your persistence.
Self-doubt could drive you to pestilence.
Kindle in your heart value of hope.
Fear could push you down the slope.
Too early to pack up your game.
Time to put naysayers to shame.
Remember winners never quit
Believe quitters never win.
