Thankyou the Clash!

Staying up until two last night finishing The Great Gatsby, reading a Call to Die, then resting my eyelids listening to music, this great older song came on. "I'm Not Down" by the Clash! hahaha the lyrics have been keeping a smile on my face today!

If it's true that a rich man leads a sad life
N' that's what they from day to day
Then what do all the poor do with their lives?
Have nothing to say on judgment day?

I've been beat up
I've been thrown out
but I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up,
but I've grown up
And I'm not down,
I'm not down

On my own I faced a gang of jeering in strange streets
When my nerves were pumping and I
Fought my fear in, I did not run
I was not done

And I have lived that kind of day
When none of your sorrows will go away
It goes down and down and hit the floor
Down and down and down
some more depression

But I now there'll be some way
When I can swing everything back my way
Like skyscrapers rising up
Floor by floor,
I'm not giving up!!

thank you friend :) i'm glad you like it! it's funny how art kind of twists away from what you planned and turns into something better, huh? originally, i planned to have the piece all angry, but it turned out to be something more beautiful, something not as harsh. oh well, i'm glad you liked them! :)
