No Excuses


No Excuses

I’ve got a headache
Stress will do that!
You say that I’m done
I tell you to prove that

My feet are sore
I sure carry a lot
You say that’s why I’ll quit
I say no it is not

I’ve got cramps in my fingers
From gripping a pen
You say that’s my sign to give up
I say your playing pretend

Just because it hurts to continue
From a life of constant abuse
It doesn’t mean that I will ever stop
And my pain will never be an excuse
