It never stood the test of time

It never reached it's prime  

It didn't go too far 

The light wasn't the star

On the way, it was grief throughout

Blame and anguish was its spout 

It collapse to the ground 

It was searched but not found 

It was done so cunningly 

Yet it failed woefully

I did it all.

I faced it all.

I felt it all.

Because I did it my way.

I failed Let the record show,

And then, you will know;

I did it my way.

It never lasted

Time was wasted

Because I never pray

I did it my way
