Forever

Forever it seems I struggle
day in day out fight
Around me is so much trouble
a darkness blocking my light

There once was a time I trusted
felt this life was so sweet
knowing some things will get busted
knocking us off of our feet

I’ve watched the kindness of many
who pick up the pieces that fall
building the world together
they let in the light to us all

But then there’s the greedy & haters
deceiving and cheating the sad
if stronger did really mean better
if smarter meant good and not bad

Thru all this pain and jealousy, there can be love and honestly
All I ever cared most for, was a smile in an open door.

Don’t let hate’s river wash you down, don’t let fear turn you around
Don’t let greed’s fire burn too hot, don’t forget battles that were fought

Forever it seems we struggle
day in day out fight
Around us is so much trouble
A darkness blocking our light

Together in separate dreams
we all share this life so sweet
knowing things sometimes get busted
knocking us off of our feet

Join in the kindness of many
who pick up the pieces that fall
Don’t foolishly think you are winning 
By hiding behind some high wall

But then there’s the greedy and haters
deceiving and cheating the sad
if stronger did really mean better
if smarter meant good and not bad

Thru all this pain and jealousy, there can be love and honestly
All I ever cared most for, was a smile in an open door.

Don’t let hate’s river wash you down, don’t let fear turn you around
Don’t let greed’s fire burn too hot, don’t forget battles that were fought
