It's not easy
No one said the road would be easy, and if you live long enough you'll find out it's not all peachy nor creamy.
You'll find out all about the bumps and the bruises, the trials and tribulations.
You'll experience some heartache and pain,
Some long suffering, and witness things inhumane.
You'll experience being afflicted with trauma, and humiliation.
You'll witness riots, and many protests.
You'll experience hatred and competition,
You'll also experience love and respect.
You'll see beauty fade, and witness how black don't crack.
You'll see the many people fall in love with all shapes and colors.
You'll see people fighting for their lives, and some fallen into death.
You'll witness people fall out, and
Families repair brokenness.
Even if that doesn't happen, repair yourself.
You'll see the rising up and the falling down of people of all nationalities.
You'll see people join hands and become a beacon of light for the oppressed.
You'll see people speak up for those who can't speak for themselves.
You'll see people smiling and frowning, laughing and crying.
You'll see the good the bad and the ugliness;
Of a wicked world and wicked people in authority.
Most importantly you'll be a witness of your very own progress.
We fall down but we get back up.
They say life is a test, and all we really want is happiness.
Nothing beats a failure if you try, and always have an open mind.
I am a prime example of how beauty can fade, and how God can wash your sins away.
I'm an example of how trauma can invade, and people walk away.
I'm an example of how easily your life can slip away, but also how believing in yourself can help build up your inner man.
Everything is not meant to kill you some things are meant to build you.
If you don't fight for what you believe in, your life can fall into the enemies hand.
I'm a witness of how the wind can bend, and maybe even break branches, but a tree is rooted and planted.
I'm a witness of God's Grace and Mercy, and everyday I rise I'm one step closer to accomplishing my purpose.
God is a God who will not fail, so wake up with expectations because God's word will prevail.
