Thorns


So you got knocked down yet again
But you don’t have to endure this pain
Get up from the ground and stand up tall
Don’t let people make you feel small

People told you that you would never amount to anything
But I believe that you will be something
Don’t let anyone tell you’re not enough
Life is already too tough

When you get pricked by the thorns in a rosebush
Believe that not everything will crumble to dust
Perhaps every thorn has its rose
Maybe this isn’t the way the story is supposed to go
Take your life into your own hands
Be brave enough to make a stand
