Storm I Call Life

I open my eyes,
Struggle to see the light,
The light through the cloud of the storm,
This storm, I call it life.
It shakes you, and breaks you.
Tries to tear you down till you nothing more,
Then pieces of the earth you stand on.
I say to myself,
You got to stay tough,
Got to stay strong,
You will make it through this all right.
Sometimes it seems not so,
Like you just want to curl up in a corner,
And allow yourself to give in,
I convince myself that it is not worth the fight.
Not worth it cause you can’t win.
Look up to the stars,
You can be who you are.
You’re beautiful no matter what is said.
You can do this, you can make it.
You are loved.
There is someone out there you are the world to.
