Life is not a box of chocolates
If life is like a box of chocolates why isn’t it sweet?
I work my fingers to the bone just to make ends meet.
Life rips your heart out and breaks your back.
Pushes you down ‘till you land with a smack.
It puts its hand out to pick you back up.
It shoves you right back down just to see if you’re tough.
Life is more like a roller coaster
Puts your heart in your stomach and your head in a spin.
It rips you around just to do it all again.
Takes a short break while you catch your breath.
All the sudden you drop to what seems like your death.
It isn’t all bad.
Not all a run in one place.
I look up to the stars and put a smile on my face.
I know we go through hell on Earth.
It is only so we go to heaven and see what it is all worth.
