I’ve felt “broken down and tired of living life on a merry go round” but I’m a fighter.
Where I find my strength? Well, I’m not so strong all the time but I find my strength in external things most of the time. It’s the way I find appreciation for life.
Hearing the birds chirping in the morning, watching the sun rise…it symbolizes another chance, another day to live perhaps in a different way, possibly different from yesterday? When given another day, nothing is impossible…and so I “rise up” in hopes that today may be that day I get off the ‘merry go round’.
