Life is a psychopath, a bully and rarely fair
It’s going to push you over, kick you while you’re down
And hit you when you try to get back up
But your victory comes when you’re not beaten.
Listen to your heart, follow your dreams
And let no one tell you what you’re capable of.
Push your limits, bend the rules
And enjoy every minute of it.
Laugh at everything, sulk over nothing
Neither for the milk still in the cup nor for the one that’s spilled!
Love all, but trust a few…even then, sparingly.
Believe in yourself, and never lose faith in others.
Settle for nothing but only the best,
And when it’s not the best, give your 100% to make it so.
Take risks, live on the edge
Yet stay safe…caution never killed anyone!
Jump on every opportunity, but tread carefully
Life can be a con artist as well!
Not everyone’s going to love you,
But who needs the haters anyway?
Challenge everything, and fight for what you believe,
Back down to nothing,
Even when your loins tremble with fearful release
In the face of a fiercer opponent!
But give in to the little things in life
After all, that is what makes you.
Believe in God, have a religion
‘Cos the afterlife is a bitch if you don’t!
Forget the unnecessary, but remember everything and take wherever you go
Learn something now, and appreciate criticism.
But when the line is crossed from censure to scorn,
Slap that moth*fu**er from Sunday to Sunday!
Hate nothing, but dislike what you want,
A healthy dose of dislike is a necessary evil.
Never forget where you came from
And always remember where you are going.
Live your life to its fullest
And have a reason for everything, even if it’s totally insane.
Find your purpose in life, and Live It!
‘Cos life may be a psychopath, a bully and rarely fair!
But it is also a gift, and its rewards abound!
