As far as I can remember life has always been
Very challenging for me but never even one day
Have I ever entertained the thought of giving up,
Hope of waking up to a beautiful and bright day
Gave me more strength to persevere.
My father inspired me in so many ways by the struggles he survived.
The never-quit mentality is one of the traits I inherited from him.
His beyond-measure courage was what I grabbed
With both hands, willingly it brought me this far.
Belief that life is worth living gave me insight into dealing with life’s issues.
