April 26, 2010 - I Will Never Quit




I Will Never Quit

Rumbling thunder is heard in the East
Lightning strikes in the West
The rain cascades down my back
But I feel no unrest

This hill I'm climbing is so steep
I've been here for years
I can't remember where I'm going
But I will cry no tears

I've not seen the sun in days
Everything is dark
Can't see where to place my feet
But I will hit my mark

No matter what may come my way
I'll make the best of it
I'll put my best foot forward
And I will never quit

Nice one Neva, I'm no quitter either, always an optimist and a positive thinker, some things that happen during our lifetime makes us stronger, we have to keep climbing that hill
