She asked me "do you still believe in your dreams?"
Of course, I said, I follow them every day
"How do you do it, knowing life is harder than it seems?"
The answer, sweet girl, is not in the black and white but the grey.
Honestly, life at its fullest can wear a person down.
It can overwhelm you and make you feel defeated
Waves of emotion washing over you til you drown
You breathe it in refilling hope that's depleted
Use the life it gives to help your heart grow stronger
That's the key, I tell her, to the strength of hope
When you feel like you just can't stand any longer
You let your belief give you wings and you learn to cope
