    I walked a many miles
    i lost my smile along da way
    captured in the mist
    putting up wit all dis

    Hard work

    I've moved from left 2 right
    i even took off in flyte
    gave my love
    comforting wit lots of hugz
    simple wordz carressing
    wit tenderly love

    Hard Work

    rip my spin
    til i'm blind
    what be of light
    not so bright
    da darkness flow
    no mo glow
    the fight has begun
    i promise never to run
    not once did i even
    reach for a gun
    i falls to one's knees
    asking him please
    give me strenght
    on dis field of battle

    I've walked the miles of pits
    climb the hills of sorrow
    i strive more & more
    from my room
    my space
    this place
    now i trace all means
    i see through the shadows
    of death where he lure

    Hard Work !!! I say
    to keep what's captured in my heart
    playin it smart even when it seem so
    dark .....bleep bleep !!
    someone so near
    yet so far trying to control my beings
    i work my handz raw
    i set the tone and gave my worries to him
    thingz may not be
    peoples see me not
    but folkz i'll never rott
    on a new wave wit the brave
    the free soon this will be me

    Hard Work !! u hear me ...
    the battle i've lost
    but the WAR not ova
    i promise to succeed
    termination indeed
    just have faith in me

    I deal with a thrill
    beleaved what i feel
    still i'm riped raw
    hit by the claw
    the battle i've fail
    nope! i'll never bail

    HARD WORK !!:eeek:

    thinking cap on
    working on plan B

    who believe in me !!????
    well i'll soon will see.......:(

    Sometimes the people we love
    don't always return the love
    and encouragment we give them.
    That's why it's important to love
    and believe in ourselves.
    (I believe in you) :)


    Scribeaboutit! It helps.
