    When I'm saddened by life's trials
    theres no where to turn
    days that are cloudy
    encompasses the sun
    I reach down inside and whisper....

    I will prevail

    When the passion for life
    dims to a dull light
    and the world that we live in
    shows no compassion for one's plight
    I reach down inside and whisper.....

    I will prevail

    When confidence escapes me
    beaten down with little hope
    negative vibes inspire
    doubt and futile dreams
    I reach down inside and whisper......

    I will prevail

    with knowledge you can excel
    to reach limitless heights
    with prayer you can conquer
    all those who offer spite
    some may embrace you
    others may say......oh well
    but, it is the voice deep inside that whispers.....

    I will prevail

    Your words inspire

    us all to dig deeper into ourselves...where the buried treasures are...bring them out, dust them off, and take it a lil higher.

    thank you

    uplifting and encouraging this was.

    victory must first be determined within as we win this race

    BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN AND INSPIRING!

    You feel me? Cause I felt you.
    I read the lines and my eyes started
    to blur. Was she talking about me
    or was I talking about her...?
    When I wrote Doubt is the enemy,
    You surely must have been feeling
    me like I feel you now...HOW?
    LIKE WOW..........
    keep scribin and vibin!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
