    Feeling my way through the darkness of life
    I know there is light at the end of the tunnel
    There must be light
    For there is hope

    A thousand times I've been on my knees
    Eating the dust of a thousand dreams unfulfilled
    I've gotten up a thousand times
    Dusted off a thousand suits
    Taken a thousand steps
    Always prepared to take a thousand more
    A thousand times I've moved on

    Darkness provides its own special light
    The light of desire
    The light of mental toughness
    Only the weak of heart and soul are blind

    Yes
    The light at the end of the tunnel awaits
    I don't know how far I must go
    But my movement is forward
    Onward I go

    BE

    And in the Darkness...

    You shall see light!! A distant light but nevertheless.. one that will always put you back on track and moves you forward on to your destination...

    the only thing wrong with falling to your knees, is not rising to your feet again...

    the only thing wrong with making a mistake is not learning from it..

    perserverence always has it's own reward...
