Keep Your Head Up

School, friends, family, tests & love
Is all part of this game of Life
Created by the Man Upstairs
People will do their best
To try and make you upset
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

No family’s perfect
Everyone fights
Love is a painful lesson
Not everyone will like you
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

People may backstab you
Even if it’s not what they meant to do
Nobody will always tell the truth
Even if the lies are told not to hurt you
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

Schools not for everyone
But everyone’s smart
The things that school may teach you
Might never touch your heart
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

Life is a game
You've got to be strong to win
The hardest things in life
To learn, love and fight
But never give in
Keep your head up to win

Now I’ve yet to win
But I would imagine
You'll see your whole life at once

And see what was meant for you

And you'll see which life lessons saved you

You can never give in

Keep your head up to win

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
