You Can Survive
You Have It Within You
November 6, 2006
When the ocean empties and the land turns blue,
When my path is blocked and I can't make it through,
When the stars fall down one by one and it rains snow,
When my car breaks down and I can't find a tow,
I will still stand on my own feet proud and tall,
I will get back up on my feet after the hardest fall,
I will find my way home through the foggiest dim path,
I will always have the strength for a smile and a good laugh.
We walk each day down a narrow and winding road,
We struggle and always seem to survive each life turn,
No matter how big and heavy we always carry the load,
I may fall and crash but I won't lie there to burn,
Each moment of life contains a lesson to be learnt.

Whenever something gets you down and all those bad feelings return you have to remember you're the soldier and this life is your war. Are you going to let life beat you down and keep you there or are you going to fight for your rights? I think I know the answer to that and that is you will fight until your last breathe because that's how you have learned to survive and what grief has taught you.
How strong are the people that suffer with grief? In my case, after 18 years, I feel like I have the strength, courage, faith, wisdom, truth and guts to make it through any problem. I sit here and think about some people's problems and how little they are and how much they worry over such a little thing, then I look at myself. I've learnt to only worry about the things worth worrying about.
