These three songs immediately came to mind. They make an unequalled point about strength being required to survive and it takes guts fortitude and determination.
Oh no, not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
And I’ve got all my love to give and I’ll survive
I will survive, hey, hey
12. “Roar” by Katy Perry
Katy Perry is no shrinking violet. In this 2013 Grammy-nominated hit, she celebrates her transformation from a spineless pushover to a gutsy broad who is ready to tackle any challenge.
If you find that you need motivation, her can-do spirit is contagious.
God knows I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of reasons to give up give in, quit. But I am a survivor. You can too! So whenever life gets too much, seems overwhelming and too difficult remember one of these fabulous woman and sing their song as though it were an anthem and in your weakest moments, it will buoy you up and get you through to the next step.
Adele is one of my all-time favourite artists.
This is, alas, the end of November Songs. I wish to thank you all for offering up a selection of thought-provoking music, in which to take part. It has been a delightful pleasure indeed. I also thank each of you, dear readers, for following along. Interpretation pertaining to each song by each writer has been individual and so interesting to follow.
I thought our future strong
That you were the only one
Until you belittled and put me down
Or you sliced me up without a sound
I’m not what you would make of me
I never was, I never could be
For I don’t want to keep up with all
The ups and downs that you so enthrall
Affection, love, devotion, strong
Are what we needed to build on
Not the wall to shut me out
Leaving me filled with such doubt
Always keeping me at arm’s length
Until finally I admit defeat with strength
I held on hoping you would see
What you were doing to me
I shall go on, alone for a time if I must
Perhaps then find someone else to entrust
All that I have to give and share
Enjoying a life beyond compare
Some people have such an elegant way
Of bridging the gap and therefore allay
Concerns or fears or shy retreat
Through loving words and care so sweet
Encouraging, enlisting strength to meet
The daily rigors of life continually upbeat
Never defeated by life’s demands
Full force they greet the day and understand
There is life and joy and fulfillment to be had
If only we reach out a helping hand
To those too innocent to stand alone
Ushered through life too easily blown
Speared by judgment and power abused
The strong will bridge the gap unexcused
To help the young blossom and grow
And reach yet another large plateau
Of confidence, footing assured
Passing the baton reassured
The knowledge assistance had
Shall leave the tender shoots clad
In a more sure-footed attitude
To reach man or womanhood
A word of beauty, strength, solidarity and hope. For together we have weathered all manner of storms. As one we are strong, together we are mighty! This vigil of life we undertake, and whether daily or nightly, we offer protection and sanctuary to those we love. Understanding abounds when we face the onslaught of all that comes our way. We clap our hands tightly and hold firm so any attack seen or not, we quelled. The unity in this word binds us together as one. Nothing shall stay the love we hold dear. Job changes aplenty would frighten many, but not us, they were cause for celebration. Together we have gained perspective and appreciation for all the sacrifice and pleasure we attained.
As one we are strong, together we are mighty
This vigil we undertake, whether daily or nightly
To offer protection to those we love
An umbrella of devotion up above
Our clasped hands tight and firmly held
An onslaught though unseen we quelled
Jobs changes and relocations
Became delightful celebrations
Together we have gained perspective
Strength solidarity and hope were not elective
Summed up by appreciation and affection
Our life a wonderful reflection
Of what we can share and accomplish, together.
