The King of Second Chances
January 21, 2017
To the King of Second Chances a loss is just a loss, a lesson to be learned, not a reason to be blue.
If a lesson’s learned, the pain becomes a sting, another way to remember not to do that thing.
Mistakes are going to happen, mistakes are part of life.
If what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but quicker and more precise, the moxie you will gain will well be worth the price.
It’s okay to cry, but not okay to quit.
When you know there're second chances you always find a lift.
If you fail don’t fall apart, I’m here to help you up,
I’m the King of Second Chances, I’ll help you fill your cup.
If at first you don’t succeed you haven’t let me down.
As long as you keep trying, I get to keep my crown.
So if you see me laughing I’m not laughing at your pain,
I laugh partly to encourage, partly since I’m insane.
You need to be partly crazy to always expect to win.
When winning seems impossible, expect a silly grin.
I laugh because I’ve lost, I laugh because I’ve won.
As long as I am laughing, you know that I’m not done.
Laugh with me. We’re in this together.
