If I Should Stop Trying

If I should stop trying...
The value of my sweat and tears
Would diminished
And you wouldn't have a clue
How priceless
This gift of myself I give!
If I should stop trying...
To be better at what I do.
Not only for me,
But also for you too!
I want you to stay proud.
That's why I will not allow you to find me...
Hiding in self doubt,
Shaded by my own shadow!
