"When life shuts a it again. It's a door. That's how they work."

Some people take for granted what they’ve got
Without realizing that others thirst
They’ll risk what they don’t have for just a shot
Even when their world seems to have been cursed


Even the ones who seem to have it all
Have started at the lowest of the low
Pushed on through ev’ry rejection and fall
To become a name that now we all know


Your dreams come true “if you’ve got enough nerve”
She lived this reality through and through
After living off of fed’ral reserve
Greater than all expectation she flew


“Rock bottom became...solid foundation”
And from it she built her own creation

I think this work sends a good message, that even when it seems like you've hit rock-bottum, if you just keep trying and just push a little harder you can do the unimaginable.
