Lyrics and Music written by As We Once Were.


Such Is Life.
An analytical thought process defining one’s ability to understand the validity of misfortune and the occurrence of uncontrollable events; change is inevitable, and therefore requires acceptance.

To reach this conclusion, one must endure trials and tribulations which measure their ability to persevere during times where their own mental durability might surprise even themselves.

The uncertainty of life is both its greatest flaw and its greatest beauty. Individual circumstances remain ours to bare for a reason. We were all put here for a different purpose. And it's the path that leads to the fulfillment of that purpose which makes you the person that you were born to be.

We all silently hope that there will come a day where we can look back and be proud of the progress that we have made, but the weight of this reality is that the road to fruition is never an easy one, but such is life.
