Keep Trying

Today I rode my bike
But a stick got stuck in the spoke
I went flying in the air
But I was determined to not care
I kept on trying!

Then I went to go rollerblading 
I fell and saw the birds flying
I layed there for a while
And I know its not my style but 
I Kept Trying!

I was riding my skateboard down my street 
When I tripped and this is where me and the concert meet
I finally said I suck!
And got angry and stood up

I rode to the corner with fury and speed
I knew this time I would succed!
I grinded on the corner with no fear
I landed and was happy with tears
