traveling down lifes uneasy road with little to carry
we experience the taunts and jests thrown our way
the trials they watch just to see how we react
with no easy way to is always testing our strengths

there tends to be no way to escape its intentions
it is merciless in making us grow and learn
some make the grade while others cringe and hide
with no easy way to is always testing our strengths

it makes us grow and learn...while others become unchanged
it shows us the good...the bad...the ugly...makes us feel
for it is the pain that we learn from...or we repeat again
with no easy way to is always testing our strengths

life brings many regrets...but it also holds pride for us
it will hold bitterness...something necessary to learn survival
there is also greed and teach us humility
with no easy way to is always testing our strengths

when lifes lessons are not learned...or ignored for own reasons
those are the greedy ones...the ones who do not value life
who take what is not theirs and live a lonely miserable existance
with no easy way to is always testing our stringths
