I have always seen life for what it really is.
Ever since I was a child growing up, hard times are all I know.

I had to sit back and watch my mother work from sunset to sundown.
I had to sit back and watch my mother work herself to her grave.

Nothing ever came easy for her.
She always had a heart and kept a smille on her face.

Life is nothing but a big struggle, but just keep the faith and focus on your goals.
And after all the hell you have been through, ther is success.

Don't let life beat you or you will be walking around like zombies.
Keep on pushing, keep on trying, life can be whatever you make it to be.

But life can also be a bowl of cherries with whip cream and apple pie.
I say this again, life is what you make of it.

You can achieve or conquer anything it throws at you,
you can't quite or give up, you have got to keep on working,

look higher some way, some how you are going to make it.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
