Life is an uphill struggle.
It's about being kicked when you're down,
About picking yourself up,
Spitting out the blood and
Pushing on because you can.
It's about accepting the cards you've been dealt,
The fatalities you've drawn and
The disappointment you've expertly masked.
It's about smiling for those who need smiles and
Fighting the battles worth fighting for,
For the people worth fighting for.
It's about accepting the lies and
Searching for truths and
There is no meaning to life,
You have to find your own.
Life is hard.
It's gritty and dirty and nasty and
Fair in all the wrong ways.
Life is hard, but
Everything worth doing is.
