Don't be afraid to fail because only through failure do you learn to succeed.

Why can’t they understand a country girl’s love?
For the land and the mourning doves,
For the mountain high and the valleys low,
For the old school house and land I love,
For the teachers and friends,
For all the kin,
Who farmed the land before us,
Why can’t they understand the country farmer girl’s love?
For the animals we raise,
For the good in everyone,
When will they understand?
To live with the land,
In the country way,
To sing a song and to pray,
Why can’t they understand?
The freedom’s pride,
For the men fighting on the battle side,
I will teach them to understand,
To care for the land,
I stand alone and strong,
Someday they will learn of a country girls love

I wrote this because no one seems to understand me or the way I feel. They all turn a blind eye to what is going on instead of tryin gto make a difference. I would like to change there mind to just get them to help work for the common good.
