    Grinding must be in my DNA...
    I feel it all in my blood stream...
    I ain't even got time to stop...
    Go hard or die trying...
    Striving with purpose...
    Survival is picking them up...
    and putting them down...
    So much piled high on my plate...
    but i swallow it all in a daze...
    Knowing I exist becuse I persist...
    I refuse to go quietly in the night...
    Just gotta keep moving...
    Keep changing with the times...
    Rolling with the punches...
    Moving with the tides...
    I'm filled with desires that run deep...
    That can't be controlled or suppressed...
    Nothing is enough to quench this hunger...
    A hunger that runs deeper than my soul...
    life is something to be lived to the fullest...
    Not just for praying, waiting and dreaming...
    Can't stand still or I'll grow stagnate...
    For it is all like a fire shut up in my bones...
    I gotta keep grinding for stopping means death...
    And I ain't ready to die just yet...
    For I got so much more to see and do...
    Just so much more to accomplish...
    I don't know where this journey will take me...
    But I will die with my hand to the plow...
    Pressing forward to the most high calling...
    Grinding till six men carry me away in a box!!!

    Hello Asimplepoet...

    This is a strong song to keep one marching onward

    Does run deep!
