She dont know, how long she can stay here on this Earth. The more time goes on, passes by, she wants to just take flight.
Her morals and hopes on life are down to 5% with noone in sight. Life has always been a gamble so she decided to fight.
Listen to these words as she recites.
Never give up on anything that is right.
Keep pushing until you drop, even if it's all night. It's okay, if you want to be like a bird and fly like a kite. Make sure you stay peaceful and polite. For Heaven's sake, all she needs is hug's & kisses that would be a delight. She has always felt, sad, lonely, unattractive, ugly, dumb, weird and the list will go on despite the rules in this journey, it will end tonight. All she heard was a voice say, "stand tall, refocus and smile, you are loved we hope you see the light."
Life will work out for however, whenever, whatever, please stay here with all your mite. - Poetic ER
