Look the devil in the eye

Perspire past the pain,

Look the devil in the eye,

Swear you won’t fail unless you die.

When you fall in public, you feel naked,

You know they’ll grin if you don’t make it.

So stay more focused than the stargazer,

Stand up and stitch yourself together;

Put your face to the fire,

If you will go, go higher.

Pump in more sweat, more time,

If you will war, war for a calm clime.

Look the devil in the eye,

True failure

Is when we fail to try!
