“Never Give Up,

Keep on Keepin’ on”

by Steven Douglas Hand…


The more BS that we

each have to face in life is because

“Our Spirits are in Graduate School”

where strength is grown

and we’re about to Graduate!

The struggles are where our

Strength is grown

and the fires are where

 the impurities are purged!

The fires of life

burn off the impurities

and allow room for our

spirits to become purified!

The pressure of life 

is where “Diamonds”

come from."
