Life is what you make it
And not how you take it
It's like a roller coaster
going up and down and all around

I can't explain it
The trials and tribulations that we go through
But with our faith and strength in God
There's nothing that we can't do

Whether we are rich or poor
Black or white, educated or under rated
Successful or a non achiever
Life will be the same

But if we don't succeed
We'll be the ones to blame
Time waits for no one
And life passes us by each day

So make the best out of what you may
Don't be afraid to challenge yourself
Through your struggles
Many will see
Just how wonderful your journey in life shall be

    I like the mountain top experiences but I have gotten lots of valleys in my life. The valleys are the teachers. I like the way that you handled the subject matter. Keep writing.Sara
