One thing about life it will challenge you
and will later find you out
Throwing it's punches from everywhere
trying to win the bout

No fighting fair, it's just not there
even the good have it's play
When you try so hard to make things work
something comes to offset your day

But I found an antidote for life's problems
that is to smile even when it hurts
For surly it will try to keep you down
therefore, you must be on alert

When the weathers bad, say it's sunny
if broke, just say your rich
When out of work, say you own the building
in whatever it is, just find your niche

Who can best write your life's story
but the one who braved the trails
Rising up each day to face the challenge
and being determined not to fail

When life knocks, you can open the door
have no fear of accepting it in
and no matter if raining, clear or dark
you have within, the will to win

Give someone a helping hand
give that flower while they are here
and this makes one's life, a little bit better
in knowing you helped to bring some cheer
