Letting Go and Holding On
Oh how I love life,
walking outside in spring and summer
and smelling the honeysuckle floating on the warm breeze.
Couples walking hand in hand,
smiles of happiness from being in love
owners walking their dogs,
kids laughing and playing,
birds chirping and singing all day long
each and every day the world continues on.
Life is crazy,

And never lose faith in others, Settle for nothing but only the best, And give 110% in everything you do.
Take risks, Live on the edge, Yet stay safe,
Never lose hope for tomorrow
A tomorrow filled with pure happiness
knowing that this direction on the path is the one and only way... Success.
A tomorrow filled with the reassurance that you’re headed for better days. A tomorrow with a...
