So Many No’s

Regina Puckett


The best of us are forged by pain and fire

Their lives we often so long for and admire

We want to be like them but please leave off the pain

We want their success without going through the rain

Why can’t we reach the top without the fight

Do we have to jump off the cliff to achieve flight

Do we really have to gather each feather in our wings

Do we really have to be jokers before becoming kings

Why can’t life be just a little bit easier than this mess

Why do we have to hear so many no’s before we hear yes?
