I remember a type of quote people used to say
> But I never really understood it 'til today
> Life will only get harder from here
> I think about that almost every time I shed a tear
> I look back on the happy years I once had
> And I wish for them to come back Oh so bad
> Pressure is a big part of teenage lives today
> Temptations of sex, drugs, and violence never seem to go away
> You never really know which road to choose
> It seems which ever way you go, your bound to lose
> Happiness eventually falls on your lap
> Only to look once more and see it gone in a snap
> Why does it seem I can't smile like before?
> As if the joyous part of me walked right out the door
> One day I'll find happiness again
> I just have to live my life until then
> And while I'm waiting just for that
> I think I'll give myself a pat on the back
> 'Cuz I've come this far without giving up completely
> I'm trying to enjoy life, it's very difficult, believe me
> I guess that's the message I'm trying to send out
> To keep your head up when giving up is what your thinkin 'bout
> Take life's punches right in the face
> And you'll see things will come to you at there own pace
