Life (with explanation)

Life is living
But then again it’s not
Because living goes on
Stop breathing
Life stop

{Life is nothing but being here on earth and a person can really live forever.}

Picture this if you may
To help you understand
How a person lives forever
After creating a man

{ When a child is born; then loved taught and nurtured
till the time he is a man, when he has a child he will teach the same to
 his child and his to child and so on and so on.}

Life is a path
That can go many ways
The roads are cloudy battle fields
With soldiers in a daze

{What we do in life leads us to us to where we are right now. But without parents
and their guidance; it’s real easy to fall off and make hard times real hard times}

Some are chosen
Some say {f_ck it} {bluff it}
While some give up
and cries tears by the bucket

{Some people just got easy, and some just automatically work hard to make it. While others
accept where they are. Some people just can’t take it and refuse to help themselves and sit back
and feel sorry.}

Life is a tough road
But we can all get to the end
And go on living;
Loved, Remembered, and a friend

{I know it’s hard and life is full of bull but all people have the ability to bounce back and be
Remembered as being forgiving, forgetting and being a better person.

So soldier march on
The further less dazed
The further the march
The greater the praise

{So be strong and think about things you do, becuase that’s what you’re going to pass on to your
Children. And when they grow up they’re going to love their father and going to love their
Mother and they will know they got that far because of you}

So climb the mountain
Swim the ocean,
Sometimes don’t look back
Because some soldiers
In the battlefield
Just don’t know how to act

{So you go to school if you’re young, work hard if you’re older, love if you’re wicked, break bread if
You’re stingy, forget if you can’t forget, listen if you can’t listen. And if there is someone who is
stopping you from doing these things, let them go; because obviously they don’t want to achieve
what you are trying to achieve, a better life for yourself and generations after you.}

But some should be saved
Because on this road you’ve bled
But only if he’s bleeding
Still crawling ahead

{But there are some people who do and will ask for help and probably went through the same
thing you went through and maybe even more. But you can’t help someone that does not want to
be helped. The ones that should be helped are the ones that are down on their luck, stressed out,
hurting, forgotten, or lost loved ones, but are still trying to make it.}

Then pass the sword
And forget your graze
Because more soldiers to the end
Insure better days

{Now out of all of this that we have spoken on, pass it down to your kids, your friends and
Loved ones so they can also live forever and in return the world would be a better place.}
