I may have a room full of trophies
And a life full of discoveries
But if I don’t have love inside my heart
All that I have will soon break apart.
All things in this world have conditions.
You are based through your words and actions.
Almost all things can’t last forever.
Discipline makes one’s life easier.
Pain is not enough to have your strength.
Endurance makes one’s life long in length.
The advantage and disadvantage
Of things, you must study with courage.
What’s your worth if you’ll lose your self?
Will you choose to stay in that old shelf?
Life’s expiration is up to you.
Never stay old but choose to be new.
