Do Your Best Under the Circumstances

There is no land of perfect, child.

There is no sea of ease.

There is no candy apple trail.       

There’s broccoli and peas.


There is no suit of armour, child.

There’s arrows and there’s pain.

But when your heart is broken, child

Stay strong and love again.


There is no perfect person, child.

Not presidents or queens.

There’s only all of us trying, child

To be human human beings.
