Life: Makes You A Warrior
Life is hard when you look back at it
And don’t know how to look forward to it
When the present isn’t where you want it to be.
Life is going to throw itself at you
Give you balls you might be able to dodge
Waves you might be able to break.
What matters is you keep moving forward
Keep your head held high
Even when it weighs itself
On your fragile shoulders.
Life is called life for a reason.
You meet the good with the bad
The raw with the empty
The light with the dark.
The dichotomy of the ebb and flow of life
Will continue to meet you
And make you a warrior.
