Life is not what you or I make it out to be.
You want to work hard and play some too.
But life is never easy no matter what you do.
Still you wish in your heart that it was that way.
And in doing so you're wasting in the end your time you see.
There are times you sit and wait for a miracle to happen every day.
Be diligent and patience in all you desire to accomplish and do.
For in spite of everything you'll still get hurt and suffer any way.
Bad things ensue to each of us for some reason.
It may not look good at all but for everything there's a season.
And come what may come that's life and the way that's to be.
It is not your fault or mine when certain things take place you see.
So live life well and love and laugh and press on with courage my friend.
And when you fail and fall, so what? Get up and pray that you'll soon mend.
Because no matter what, sooner or later we all get hurt so bad and then we cry.
Our hearts will be broken so many times we can't evade this forever each day.
So let your tears fall freely when you need to weep and vehemently pray.
Be joyful for God in all His Divine love and mercy will wipe each of your tears away.
