Ups and Downs

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
As we all age, nothin’ stays the same
Our physicality, mentality, and life change
We can only anticipate certain stuff
Yet forget that what we have is so much

The focus seems to be on what isn’t there
Whatever happened to gratitude
Did it just vanish in thin air
Sometimes we need to check our attitude

The forgotten template of struggle dispersed
As if we’re not thankful until things are worse
So many forget that what they have others may not
It isn’t about the gain or what it is you got

Look out beyond yourself to notice
There are needs everywhere so potent
Your senses and clothes seem simplistic
But speak volumes to how you’re livin’

Not everyone’s lifestyle is pleasant
The luxuries we have are what’s mostly taken for granted

Hook (x2):
Life is full of ups and downs
We travel through with grins and frowns
Our abilities often overlooked
And our necessities unnoticed
Realize the ways you’ve been blessed

2nd Verse:
They say you never know what you got till it’s gone
It’s rather true when someone says so long
Those relationships that build
Are irreplaceable because you’re fulfilled

You have to put in action to get a reaction
This life isn’t about our personal satisfaction
Our methods and antics have consequences
So there isn’t a need for any nonsense

What we do affects many in society
Even if you’re reclusive you still have a family
Some may feel alone, but there are those that care
If you take a second to look it is clearly there

Love is often sought out
But the definitions are leavin’ many in doubt
So many different spins on it
Hardly anyone knows when it is truly legit

In accordance to what you’ve obtained
Be thankful for some of the unexplained

Hook (x2):
Life is full of ups and downs
We travel through with grins and frowns
Our abilities often overlooked
And our necessities unnoticed
Realize the ways you’ve been blessed

3rd Verse:
Go out and hug your family and friends
Tell them you love them till the very end
Not everyday is a guarantee
So don’t take for granted that which you need

Embrace your responsibilities and priorities
For they help give you a part of your meaning
Not everyone can do what it is you can
So help progress the success of the grand plan

Hook (x2):
Life is full of ups and downs
We travel through with grins and frowns
Our abilities often overlooked
And our necessities unnoticed
Realize the ways you’ve been blessed
