Adapt, Survive and Overcome

Life is filled with challenges and adversities to meet and hopefully overcome.  That came to mind as I was watching Mowgli.  From those thoughts:

Jungle Rainforests of the Schendi - Day Has Broken

Adapt, Survive and Overcome
by Michael Romani

Adapt, survive
And overcome
Run, boy, run
Adapt, feel alive
Be someone
Run, boy, run

Give it all you got
All lessons soon forgot
Really learned a lot
Just not always what's sought

Tears of rage
Turn that page
And face the frustration
Fallen down in prostration

Pick yourself back up
Brass ring and winner's cup
Go to those who refuse to fail
That's who will always prevail

Adapt, survive
And overcome
Run, boy, run
Adapt, keep alive
Be someone
Run, boy, run

No monkeying around
It's what I've found
If you want to win
Get back up again

It's only the losers
Who remain as chosers
Deciding to stay down
Mired in the mud of the ground

Instead, stay strong
With the strength of where you belong
Faith in that sense of together
Is what you know makes you better

Adapt, survive
And overcome
Run, boy, run
Adapt, to keep alive
Be that someone
Run, boy, run
