Never Gives Up

Never Gives Up by DaShaelah S.

I am a fish that
floats in water
I am the sun that
hates to fall
I’m the tiger that
fights for what’s mine
I’m a tree that
never loses its leaves
I’m the book that
refuses to close
I’m a leaf that
doesn’t change colors
I’m the zebra
with no stripes
I’m the planet
with no rings
I’m the park
With no swings
I’m the turtle
without a shell
I’m the bird
with no beak
I’m the flower
with no petals
I’m the light
that can’t go off
I’m the person
that doesn’t back
