My Fight For Life
By: Amy M. Kennedy

Life is like a rollercoaster, with its many ups and downs
Which makes me only push harder, continuing to go on
I refuse to let life get me down, and turn my smiles into frowns
No, I'll just keep fighting...until the break of dawn
Onward and upward, I will not give in
Fighting with all that I am, and all that I can be
I will continue to strive, until I climb to the top and win
Forward I will go, never looking backward...till the end I can see
The road of life is tough, it can easily break your heart
It can make you feel like your lost, alone and cold in the night
However believing in yourself, thats the place to start
Never giving up hope or faith, never letting it out of sight
I will continue to give my all, until I draw my last breath
And still I will go on hoping and believing and trying, even in my death

 ~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~

you go girl!!!!!!!!!!!
perfect declaration of strength amy-girl
I dig your manifesto  (smile)
take care sweets, jm

 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

Hi Amy,

With this kind of strength you have you will go very far in life and you will have many blessings, even through the ups and downs.

I love this one...
