There will be times when the tide is high
and the boat may be rocky, you can cry
but never give up.
Although sometimes I know it seems impossible, there ain't no need in drowning in your sorrow. If things are as bad as they can be, you can be sure there'll be a brighter tomorrow.
Sometimes having more is really less, so take a look inside yourself and realize you're really blessed.
