Life's Lesson

There's nothing I can do
To make this smooth
To take the pain away
Would only tarnish the lesson
Take it and run
Run far far away
Take the pain
And let it go
Take the strength
And keep it for yourself
Be what you choose
Live like there's not tomorrow
Don't live in the past
But don't forget it
Not as easy as it sounds
It won't happen overnight
Or simply appear when you wake
It takes most a lifetime to deal
But you'll make it
To grow is to learn
To live is to grow
Don't stop learning
Carpe Diem
