Life's Rough, Kid


There's a rough path to your dreams, kid.

You're going to get beat down and maybe even run over,

You're going to reach a point where you feel like you can't take anymore.

Not everyone can throw money at their problems,

Not everyone can express their feelings,

Not everyone will follow their dreams,

But you will, kid.

When you get beaten down, stand up.

When you feel like it's the end, look around.

Look at the life you have to be thankful for,

Look at the people that support you no matter what,

Look at yourself in the mirror.

When you feel like you're alone and you've been thrown off of your path,

Pick yourself up and dust yourself off.

Keep on walking and you'll find your way, kid.
