rise above & open your eyes.

This pain that I feel, I will overcome.
I know somewhere deep down inside that
it's the pain that makes us strong
I could curse, I could shout, & take the easy way out.
I'll forgive you, somehow.
I will rise above.
I'm gonna keep walking, though it may seem far.
I'm gonna keep preaching when life gets too hard.
I'm not going to let you bring me down.
I'm gonna keep climbing until I see the top.
I'm gonna keep trying though I may get lost.

I will rise above this.

    Now I know, I'm not giving in.
