My courage, my strength, I must go on, I must have faith!
My love, my fear, both appreciated more with every tear!
My mercy and intuition help me to evaluate every situation.
My blood, my sweat, help me to pay off every debt!
My joy my passion, I will always remember smiling and laughing!
My life, my strife… Nothing’s won without a fight!
My lies my hate, not forgotten, never too late.
My hope my creed, shown by every deed.
Hard work and dreams, sometimes nothing is as it seems.
My doubt and questions; answered by hard life lessons.
Every family member, every friend… No matter what, I’ll be there for you until the end! No matter how hard or painful, lonely, or cruel… Don’t give up; there is nothing we can’t do.
LIVE, always for good, leave no moral left misunderstood!
LOVE with all your heart; if you don’t give it your all, it’s not even worth the start!
Life is not easy, no one ever said it was… So live it for yourself, not for someone else.
Try to be humble and kind, you never know in life what you will find…
Do this not for me but for yourself… To say; I have nothing else!
