Never Surrender

    "So if you're lost and on your own
    You can never surrender
    And if your path won't lead you home
    You can never surrender
    And when the night is cold and dark
    You can see, you can see light
    Cause no one can take away your right
    To fight and never surrender.

    With a little perseverance you can get things done
    Without the blind adherence that has conquered some

    And nobody wants to know you now
    And nobody wants to show you how..."

    ~just singing aloud, dedicating it to a strong person cum friend like you!

    Vayie,
    That song is on my current playlist, "Never Surrender" by Corey Hart; a very powerful ballad...in the sense that it gives hope.

    Ivy,
    Thanks; I'm glad you appreciated the pictures' sceneries.

    That quotation has always been among my sources of inspiration...

    I think, it simply means that, no amount of adversity or difficulty in life should reduce us into pathetic individuals. That, we should always rise above whatever obstacles hurled at us by enemies or Life itself.

    That, as long as we're alive, we should always be ready to pick up the pieces out of our own failures and shortcomings.

    That, the fact that we were able to survive such troubles, problems, and trials...means that we are made of strong stuff; our characters are indomitable.

    The reason I do not admire those who commit or attempt suicide...because this means, they let such trials kill them.
