I Have


I have lived, so therefore, I know of life,
I have learned, not always the easiest ways possible,
I have run with the best, quite always a little behind,
I have loved, mostly in the wrong places and paid dearly,
I have worked hard and long for very little or sometimes a lot,
I have given without thought of the value handed over,
I have taught in the interest of my fellow man,
I have been beaten, for my thoughts, words and deeds,
I have been persecuted for defending the rights of others,
I have hungered and had no food of which I could eat,
I have drank the sweetest of some and bitterest of others,
I know of seeking, and I have experienced that of finding,
I have craved yet learned to do without,
I have been forlorn, yet never gave up hope,
I have questioned, yet never failed to believe,
I have found, so I now possess the love of my life,
I have lived, and learned and I will survive,
I have been there, so I know,
I Have
