The Tree of Life

      The tree of life,I climb today,
                  So hard 
                  to climb, 
            Try different ways
                 Life breeze
                  is blowing, 
            It swings,  it sways
                  I hold on 
                     tight,
                I climb,I pray,
                 I wont fall.
                   I have
                      to
                    stay,
          
                       C
                       L   
                       I
                       M
                       B
                       I
                       N
                       G
          
                  for that,
               Victorious day.....
