    We start the race beaten and ill prepared, yet when we can't run our best race somehow, it's our own fault. smh Keep bringing those deep thoughts to the table.

    so often we face this within yet we get lost from what we face

    yea life is hard

    but years from now this pain you goes which i've gone through and still going thru will make you stronger just stay positive
    harp on the positive cut the negative as much as you can
    and continue to grow and gain that power
    the day will come trust me

    thank you all...I appreciate your comments...

    this is not about a personal struggle...it is about our struggle here in the wilderness of America. about hurdles being placed and us overcoming them....just barely alive.

    i need to work more...the interpretations arent that clear. I will keep trying.

    It was clear enough for me.
    Not to mention, this should be even clearer...that inspite of it all ..."Still we Rise"

    Wonderful piece of art poet, keep dropping the knowledge in our mist.
