This has always been a sensitive saying to me, but now as I get older it makes sense. No matter what life has thrown at me I made up in my mind I will never give up. Maybe that is my talent, but what am I willing to die for? I believe it's called (Perseverance) doing the best I can to help myself and others that trying to make it. No matter what I understand that this journey is mine and mine alone, even if it kills me.
Sorry I just like this view lol
