Life is hard but life is good

Hard to know which way to go
what to do and what to show
Trying hard to just be me
let life lead where it sees

But just when things are going fine
a curve in the road and then I find
myself at home alone and sad
except the fact that I’m a dad

Contemplating life’s ups and downs
wondering what will be found
while deep inside I look to see
issues there that still plague me

Continual work on them a must
it’s do or die, do or bust
but all’s not lost nor will it be
work I will and then we’ll see

Life is hard but life is good
follow your heart and not what you “should”
and in the end life will bring
maybe not what you want, but what you need

It could be love or might be pain
it could be sunshine or maybe rain
One heals the heart the other shows you’re alive
one helps you grow the other survive
