Just a little too late

Just a little too far

Bound to this fate

A night without stars


Just a little better

Just a little farther

They may soar ahead

But, still haven't fled


A step turns into a fall

A run morphs into a crawl

A woe transforms to a blaze

Doubts become a haze


Just a little better

Just a little farther

No matter how far or near

Let a small change defy fear

Until it bursts into victory

    they may soar ahead but still haven't fled love this line as it sums up this poem of persistence..
    I would however suggest you put a space and separate the last line thereby keeping all verses at four lines in keeping with the poems rhythm.. really enjoyed this piece
