This Post Could Be Called, 'Never Give Up, Never Surrender!',

or try, try, and try again,

it is the story of skateboarder Christian Flores, who spent two years of pain and suffering, to perform a trick, he fell down thousands of times, broke boards, went to the hospital twice, and cracked a rib, 

to perform a laser flip down a triple set of stairs, personally I think wearing some protective clothing like a crash hat would have been a great idea, but at the end of the day he never gave up, never surrendered and kept trying, a testament to us all to keep trying, if if at first we do not succeed, what is it that someone once said? 'I'd rather try and fail, than never try at all,', OK I will make it easy, this is the poem the line is from,

Some say risk nothing, try only for the sure thing,
Others say nothing gambled nothing gained,
Go all out for your dream.
Life can be lived either way, but for me,
I'd rather try and fail, than never try at all, you see.

Some say "Don't ever fall in love,
Play the game of life wide open,
Burn your candle at both ends."
But I say "No! It's better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all, my friend."

When many moons have gone by,
And you are alone with your dreams of yesteryear,
All your memories will bring you cheer.
You'll be satisfied, succeed or fail, win or lose,
Knowing the right path you did choose.

it was written by William F. O'Brien, for more of his poems have a look here.
