I once wrote this short story for a writing contest in the 14th of May 2018, but didn't get any feedback about it..
So, I decided to put it in here.
"Never Give Up."

Dreaming, having hope and thinking positively..

There was this person who always thought that  having hope would bring the best. Or used to...

And this person's story began when he was trying to achive his one and only dream.

He tried and tried, until he lost hope.

And one day, after he was applying at a company he always wanted to work in, he got turned down. And been told words that made him feel even more hopeless.

He got out of the company feeling miserable.  Then there was this old man who entered the company with resume papers in his hand. He got somehow curious so he waited for the old man to get out of the building and see how it went.

After a couple of minutes, the old man left the building. He had a huge smile on his face. The person walked to the old man and told him if he got accepted, the old man nodded saying yes in a cheerful way. The person felt jealous and upset at himself. The old man noticed the person's expression and told him" You didn't fall down, you're just staying down, and you can get up. I've been trying since I was young, and my chance came at this moment, where I'm an old man. Boy, never lose hope and continue what you're doing.". The old man left after saying those words.

The pereon been thinking about this old man words and been recalling them everytime he felt hopeless. 

And now this person is still trying without losing hope.

Who knows if he'll achieve his dream? He'll know for sure, as long as he's not giving up.
