    I strive to be the best that I can,
    not stayin down
    but rising up
    Unloosening the chains that have invaded my space.
    Taking what I learn to a different place
    is what I do.
    Now sometimes i admit
    I wanna quit,
    And as my lip drags the floor
    Deep down I'm STILL striving for more
    Through circumstances beyond my control
    I still stand tall
    Never wanting to fall...
    But sometimes I do....

    And in the end,
    My *** will get up again,
    brush off the dirt
    and shake off the hurt.
    For I am strong, never been weak
    Making my life better is what I seek.
    So as I wake up each day,
    not knowing whats in store,
    or why I'm even alive
    Through good or bad I still strive.

    With that passion, you can't quit cuz you come from Queens and Kings
    With the way you bounce back those in your way will feel your mighty stings

    Things may make you tumble...they may even make you trip and fall
    But, with GOD by your side, everytime you will answer HIS mighty call

    :thanks: for sharing ;)
