I will go through this life only once,
and I shall have but one chance to live.
Not all people will like me,
Some may even despise me,
as I may not be easily understood.
Yet I will take this chance to live,
and give the best I have to give.
Not all days will bring me sunshine,
So I will rejoice also for the rain;
Not every endeavor will be a success,
But I will savour the victories I achieve;
Not all dreams I dream will be mine,
But in time new dreams will fill my heart,
No fear shall trample me whatsoever,
Though some tasks seem to outweigh my spirit.
I will only do what I have to do,
Fueled by the power and capabilities within me,
Played to the best of my strengths, with all of my heart...
and God will take care of the rest.
