" No one can told you back besides yourself " MaKayla Claymore class of 2013

You never know how strong you are until
Being strong is your only choice

Life will always be a game so I have learned
It’s simple and true
So just sit and wonder what’s in it for you
Trying to figure out how to play the game

Sometimes it’s a build and break
That often ends in a fight
It is a give and take
It’s a live and learn
It’s love at the risk of getting hurt

Life is getting knocked around a little
Crawling out of the darkest moments
Surpassing your breaking point, and asking for more
Standing on your own because strength runs through your veins

Life is when your faith holds true
It’s falling to your knees when you need some help
Lending a hand every now and then, because down the road you might need one too

This life is stressful, but just take a deep breath, and a step back
Life is too short for “could of” “would of” “should of”
So play all the cards you’ve been dealt without worry.
And never let another moment pass you by.

Watch people walk out of your life
Don’t worry about them, because they never had your back
Don’t let them tell you what is impossible, because nothing is
Just make sure to prove them all wrong when your game of life is over

Love the people who have always been there for you, a little more each day
They will always been there, in the darkest moment, and your 2 seconds of fame
They will always be there when you need someone to lean on
Helping you get another “W” down in the books
Just look over your shoulder and they will be there
This is just another gain in your game of life

At the end when it’s all over look back and remember
What you lost and gained
Have no regrets, because how you played the game is up to you

Life is a game so I have learned
It’s simple and true
It’s life so go hard
