Survivor

(No laugh without tears
No glad without sad
No calm without fears
No good without bad)

*Knocked flat on my rear
And found understandin’
Oh yeah, I'm still here
Oh YEAH, I'm still standin’

(No well without ill
No near without far
No warm without chill
No heal without scar)

*God's will to survive
His hard-knockin’ school
Cruel world, I'm alive 
And I'm comin' for YOU

(No profit without cost
No clean without stain
No found without lost
No relief without pain)

*So glad I got
So honored to suffer
What don't do me in
Just makes me tougher

"What does not kill me, makes me stronger" - Friedrich Nietzsche

You entertain a multitude of bewildering emotions that flitter and flutter away in the back of your conscious mind and take root within your words. Emile. #7

I think it is too hard to be a survivor. Think of the survivors of German concentration camps. Horrors you would live with forever. I am so grateful to have smaller struggles than that. A very interesting topic you wrote on, my friend. i enjoyed this one.

Love the spirit in this one! We must have the contrasts in life but we don't have to let the bad events win the boxing match!

That's the spirit my friend. We have to give and to take; life is like a bout on the ring...we get knocked down, but must find the strength to rise and carry on. As you say, it can make one tougher! #7 All the best. // paul
