Try Anyway – Poetry Saturday

by Brian Satterlee

My friends tell me to drop the business chatter
My wife tells me it really doesn’t matter
I’m tired and I’m beat at the end of a long day
But I’m going to try anyway

With my marketing plan there’s no guarantee
When I’m dressed in nice clothes people are staring at me
There was an ackward silence after my presentation today
But I’m going to try anyway

They all say that I’m crazy that I’ve lost it
But I know in the back of my mind
That I may fail time and again on this journey
Ultimately success is what I’ll find

So I go out again for more rejection tonight
And the laughs of all my friends at my plight
But someday all of the stars will align, just not today
And I’ll keep on trying anyway… I’ll just try anyway
