Lessons in Life
Acceptance is the key for those who want change
Take a look at yourself & what you need to arrange.
Build your strengths stronger, don't focus on weakness
It's all a process that brings light to your uniqueness.
We want to succeed but at times we will fail
Don't ever give up, keep rising to prevail.
Love yourself first so that you can love back
Take heed to the heart, you mustn't attack.
Admit when you're wrong, be modest when you're right
Be ready & willing to squash any fight.
If at some point, your voice isn't heard
Take a break & take note to what has occurred.
But sometimes we need to walk away from it all
Swallow the tears & rebuild a guarded wall.
Never forget, but learn to forgive
It's just another lesson in this life that we live.
The struggle never ends, there's still more to come
Get over yourself & rejoin as one
Cause one must never turn their back on love
You gotta give all you've got when push comes to shove.
