I fall, I rise, I live
I’ve been hurt but,
I’m human, I am not perfect
But I’m thankful.
Through them I learned
To appreciate life and,
Carry on with my head held up high.
I am the rain
Past the glow
of your lamp
of your fingertips
as they press
against the glass
I slip away.
Smiles aren’t always happy,
and frowns aren’t always upset.

our feelings are what they forget.
No matter how educated,
talented, rich, or cool
you are how you treat people
ultimately tells all.

a big time rush.
On our last free throw,
The crowd starts to hush.
sport that I love
if we don’t win first—
I will go get my glove.
