Life Happens

Because bad things happen
And then life gets hard
Hope is lost along the way

But you must hold on
Because giving up is not an option
And failure means defeat

You do it for yourself
But know that other people depend
Because the struggle of the ones before you will not go in vain
Because in the middle of what resembles defeat
Always appears hope
And even when it’s small it is enough
Enough to remind us that with the bad comes the good
And nothing in life worth having comes easy
