We live through times that change,

And fight through cause and blame,

Through battles no one speaks of,

And we lose more than we gained.

We smile through silent pain,

And cry through doors that close,

We see through tinted lenses,

And age through wood and grain.

We laugh through words not spoken,

And read through lines not said,

We walk through paths unchartered,

And run through doors not chosen.

We love through ones we trusted,

And fail through faults not known,

We learn from chances squandered,

And we pray our struggles counted.
