Speech To The Young : Speech To The Progress-Toward

Rating: 3.9
Say to them,
say to the down-keepers,
the sun-slappers,
the self-soilers,
the harmony-hushers,
"even if you are not ready for day
it cannot always be night."
You will be right.
For that is the hard home-run.
Live not for battles won.

" even if you are not ready for day it cannot always be night." You will be right. For that is the hard home-run. Struggles, problems leading a life through all that and great advice to all. tony

I an afraid to say the word, ''live'' is a verb unless it is pronounced like '' life'' in the track. is it correct to pronounce it like life in this context?
