The design of life

The Design of Life

  What's worth holding onto? Does justice relate or confide with the truth? All I really know is my kind has to find a way, find a way to be strong through spirituality, belief in self and belief in human kind, While we dance with our feet and keep a song in our hearts. This is the design of life for us…
  What do the ancient echoes say? Does courage rely on or depend on hope? All I know is I haven't found hope in this world. My briefcase of blues came from this world. I've found and discovered hope in my spiritual awareness, in the law of nature and within myself. My hope gave me the courage to face tomorrow. Without hope all seems to be lost. Hope is mandatory in the design of my life…
  What is the down payment on life? Is there a lesson in living or dying? All I seem to understand is two positives don't attract. Love to hate is hating to love. Then you also can hate with a passion or love with a passion. Being able to tell the difference is the design of life for the oppressed.
