I hold onto life!


I hold onto life
Waiting for a better tomorrow

I hold on to life
Despites its constant sorrows

I hold onto life
For I know I am free to go
Once to it, I return what I borrow

Life is nice when it flows
Life is priceless in life itself

In its hardship I strive
Enjoying the pleasurables

For in life, hope is always near and fresh
For dust to dust is the human flesh
Life never gives more or less
The meaning itself is forever pointless
But I still hold onto life like you!

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
