When I was born
I let myself go with the journey
So that soon, I will understand
what is the true meaning of life.
I let myself grow
with the help of myself and people around me

there maybe a lot of trouble ahead,
but still, Life goes on..
I have God, family and friends
whom I can talk to when I am down and in difficulties.

I am ready to face some tasks and challenges.
I will work hard to survive 
I will gain some experiences
I will celebrate, and find more friends
I will intensify the enjoyment
create my own home, break rules
until i failed, lose, and cry.

Despite of that, i will still stand and learned from the best.
I will teach, write and shared my story
so that when the time comes that my soul leave my body,
I will be remembered
remembered by someone whom I know
and I don't even know...

    I was doing all I can to not let the 80s theme song of "Facts of Life" inundate my brain as I read this. :) That said, this was a strong piece. We all want to leave some kind of legacy for those in our hearts and those who don't know who we are. I fully understand this. Well done! Nice to meet you!
