Still Standing

From all the pain of yesterday I stand tall and proud For nothing left stands in my way How long I breathed the air of sorrow Drowning in the silence No I look ahead for tomorrows Many years passed waiting for my last hour The world so dark around me Oh childhood, your taste sour But yet, I marched on through to adulthood Through swamps and quick sand Searching for life for good Here I stand reminiscing of yesteryears The thick and thin of adolescence No more worry, no more tears
