Crest has totally fallen

My crest has totally fallen

I’m down and out depressed

All those little problems

I never quite addressed.


I’d kind of got my hopes up

But now they’re totally dashed

It wasn’t meant to be like this

My big ambition crushed.


I was so near the summit

I thought I reached the crest

It seems there is another slope

So can’t let up or rest.


There is no sense in moping

You’ll not get anywhere

Dust yourself off and carry on

The prize will still be there.
