Find strength;
Deep within yourself,
Remember, life is tough,
And goes around in circles...
You are being prepared-
For whatís lying ahead...
Try to remember the simple facts of life,
You crawled before you walked,
You fell from your bicycle,
Before you could rideÖ
You lose money,
Before you become a millionaire;
To lose nothing,
And to never suffer,
Youíll never get to gain,
Youíll never get to win!
Every problem has an end-
The only thing weíre sure about,
the only thing we canít escape,
Is change,
Whether you like it or notÖ
Take charge,
Youíre young...
Find inspiration in your heartache,
Itís tough, I know,
You feel abandoned,
You donít trust anyone,
But donít despair,
Open your ears and listen,
Open your eyes and look,
Wake up,
The winter in your heart will go away,
You'll be greeted with a bright summer day,
Be a champion,
Itís time for you to grow,
To shine-
Again, take charge
Lifeís got so much more to offer-
A new beginning my friend,
Waiting for you to accept.

very inspirational, I just know after reading that there is a rainbow somewhere near.

God Bless You and Your Loved Ones

So true. If all we had were good things, we'd never notice. Gotta' have a bit of trial to make the victory that much sweeter.
A change in attitude is sometimes all it takes.
