I Am Here Now

Look Ahead Toward The Future

We all want the best life in the world

For our families, friends and all those we love

Unfortunately the path that we choose isn't always gold

Sometimes it can be rocky

The main thing is we make the most of what we have

Even when times are down right unbearable we make do

Keep looking for just a little light

Something to make us feel just a little bit better

Then keep that thought in our mind and press on even further

When we are stuck

Don't fall trap for a pity party

Look at everyone around you

See their faults and weaknesses

Then look at their strong points

Learn from them and they are learning from you

There is enough room at the top for all of us

So find a way to enjoy life

Tell other people your secrets and just maybe they will share with you

Ways to make your life rock from the time you get up

Till the time you go to bed

What a wonderful feeling

No one can ever take it away

Because it is in your head

Safe and sound

That is where it can stay
