This Life

I am thankful for this life.

I have struggled in this life.

This life has taken me low,

But this life could not take me out.

This life has brought many victories.

This life has taught me to live honest and true.

I gave love, in this life.

I've born life into this life.

This life was created for me to win.

This life was made to give praise.

These eyes will always recognize the beauty of this life.

This life cannot complain.

This life could be worse.

My life could have ended, 

But this life is abundant in purpose.

22 years in, but this life...

It has just begun...
