The Secret of Life

Life is full of  pitfalls and thorns
Halfway through we find ourselves torn
Crushed and Confused
The holes deeper
The thorns bulging thicker 

Face it !
Believe to face it
Live it !
Hope to live through it

Each lesson you learn on the way
Moulds you to an archetype one day
Proud and Precious
Standing long
Head up and Strong
