The road I walk is rugged narrow and winding
The road I see straight wide and flattened
I never lose sight of my future
My future of an easier walk
And easier times
I accept my challenges and criticism from others
Others who tend to give up easily
And accept failure as an everyday accomplishment
I see struggles and concur them, walk over them
And leave them in my past
If I can forget about these things why can’t you?
Why must you wish UN happiness to fill your happiness?
Watch me walk upon my road
Watch me sink, fall, and get battered.
Watch me learn from all these things from the now past
To only build a more smooth, more easy way of life
Watch me learn from all these things I teach to you
Watch me walk down my rugged road so yours may not be as bad.
