Tired of journeying through dark

days, and the failures of life

Negative air filed her fragile lungs.


She went through the fiery path of fear;

Waiting on fate, like a carriage, to take

her to the other side of life;

resting from her woes, forever.


After you’ve done all
After you’ve done all


Done all you’ve 

To do,

And life still seem unpleasant 

And crushing, within


Don’t turn your back

Against the dream


Push through the thick
Clouds standing before you


Small steps

Little believing

Eyes set like a flint on the dream


You’re consumed by your failures

You’re overwhelmed by their 

Expectations and criticism 


The greatest, 

The legends,

The saints 

The rugged,

All went through their ups & downs


We are here;

Celebrating them

Don’t ever think they were super humans 


What set them apart from those 

Who throw in the towel easily ?


The will to pursue; feet bruised

The drive to march on; heart bleeding 

Their relentless soul, through the fire,

And the crashing waves 


Don’t give up, my dear

Don’t give up fighting

You’re not far from breakthrough

Death may taste good,

But living; impacting lives

Is more rewarding.

In the grave, there is no Living


So, live 

Live like 

It’s all you know to do well

Live, my friend



If you stand

In the end you will smile.
