Life Lived

Shake out the trembles that restrain you
Walk upright in a downward glanced world

Shake the hand that refuses you

Smile at the demons that control you
Relive the moments that embarrass you 

Grovel in the sand that grates you
Reach out to enemies that flog you

    Sounds like someone that know how to deal with adversity. Thoughtful and full of optimism - has that quality of doing unto others ans you would have them do to you.
