I have lived my life in pain
Yet I have so much to gain
I have struggled so much I am strained
Nevertheless I will keep blazing the trail.

I have learnt so much in life
I have been subdued yet unbowed
I have fallen so much I almost broke
Yet life have taught me to be strong

I have lost what I wanted most
I have stretched and yet its gone
I have held on it so long
yet my hope for it is not dashed

I have seen so much of love
I have heard so much of it
It has painted the world red
Yet I am searching to have mine

I have seen nature at its best
I have held flowers in the sun
I have seen rainbows in the sky
Yet to the sea, I am drawn the most

I have seen beauty in the sky
I have seen it in colors
I have read it in the books
Yet that of a good woman surpasses all.
