If you're struggling . . .

Came across this on a news site this morning -- a little encouragement and inspiration for us all , whatever we're facing in addition to recovery. Just watch these kids from a middle school in Baltimore belt it out. And since I had some trouble understanding the lyrics, here they are:

You're broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry-go-round
And you can't find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains

And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
And I'll rise up
High like the waves
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
For you oh oh oh oh oh [4x]

When the silence isn't quiet
And it feels like it's getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we'll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
Bring it to its feet
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
For you oh oh oh oh oh [4x]

All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We'll rise, oh oh
We'll rise

I'll rise up
Rise like the day
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we'll rise up
High like the waves
We'll rise up
In spite of the ache
We'll rise up
And we'll do it a thousand times again
For you oh oh oh oh oh [4x]

That was fantastic. I have always liked gospel music and I really don't know why I don't listen to it? It is exactly the sort of music that I need to listen to at times. It helps me to cry and let out everything that's bitter, warped and twisted within me in a safe and controlled way. Again, thank you. I will now incorporate gospel into my daily recovery.
