Life Is Worth Living


The road before you stretches long and wide.
So journey on with pride.
At times you'll hit a slide.

The crusade can be wild.
Give it all you've got,
and you won't have lost.
The risks are great.
The fruits of your labor make the rewards even greater.
Life is worth living.

You've got to be strong.
Though it may seem a long way.
You'll find what you're looking for.
As you fight this war.

Remember who you are.
Treat all you meet with love and kindness.
Don't be discreet.

At the journeys end.
Your wounds will mend.
You can say your life depends.
Caring for all the big and small.
You'll have shown that adversity can't make you crawl.

So enjoy this life.
Get past all the strife.
It's worth all the experiences that you'll have.
