All we do is to struggle
from the time we are born,
When we get older,
our lives do look so forlorn.
Seems the harder we try,
the more we all lose,
Like no more sunshine,
we've all got the Blues.
In tough times like we have,
we can't give up the ship,
This voyage of our lives,
is one challenging trip.
Got to believe in ourselves,
no matter the pain,
Take the days full of sunshine,
along with the rain.
Make a promise to your self,
keep on going straight ahead,
From the time we go to sleep,
then arise from our bed.
Things will get much better,
as time moves on along,
We each have the inner grit,
everyone does belong.

Very true my friend, We love, we work, we sustain and as we get older, the hope increases, because we know that what was far away, daily getting closer " a better New Day"
