Living is the best revenge

Living is the best revenge

When darkness seems to engulf you
And the ones you turn to
Seems to turn and run

Believe me when I say
That living is the best revenge

There are times when the mirror
Seems like your only friend
And the ones who love you
Seem so far away

The night falls all too soon
Don't hurry it along
Take faith in the heavens
And sing a survivor's song

Rise through the pettiness
Above the small minds
Who would crush your dreams?

You have a purpose
And it is not struggle and pain
To rise above and shine
In the glory of love


Soundtrack: “ Mother and Child Reunion- Paul Simon”
