Even when you are cornered

I find this month a hard one, my aunt passed away a couple of weeks ago, and just a few days ago, a dear friend had to go as well.

In these past months I have been falling, getting back up and falling down again. I will keep going ahead though. I know leaving their vessels behind, they are only celebrating in another form and one day to see them again would be an honor.

I realize a lot of people are going through hard times, so whatever you are going through, you are not alone. Keep fighting and move forward.

I have to give props to Amber for singing the song below. It can be relatable in different ways, and I find comfort in it, so thank you Amber for using your gift and talent with all of us to sharing this strong message, it does really help ❤

Fight your way through the borders.

PS: I drew Amber during my lunch time, inspired by her song “Borders” and then played around with effects/text on my phone, this is the result.

AMBER (엠버) – Borders 

Cause mom said
I’d be crossing borders
Never be afraid even
when you’re cornered
Stand up straight, fight your way
Fight your way, fight your way

All these people here
staring and looking at me
Shaking their heads eyes
down strong on me
What’s wrong with me?
Can you tell me now?
What’s wrong with me?
Can you tell me now?

The anger, the cruelty, I deserve it
And I’d do anything to
be what they call perfect
Then maybe I could find
a place to call my own and belong
But if only I was strong..

I’ll be walking with my eyes down
eyes down, eyes down
I’ll keep my eyes down
eyes down, eyes down

’Cause mom said I’d be crossing borders
Never be afraid even when you’re cornered
Stand up straight, fight your way
Fight your way, fight your way

Through the borders
Through the borders
Through the borders
Fight your way, fight your way (x2)

Stand up, fall down, up again
Up against the pressure I am in
Slowly but surely I begin
Jumping trains ‘cause I know I can win

Oh fear not ‘cause
I know I’m in His hands
Though I can’t see
I know there’s a plan
So thick the fog but
I know I can trust
The feelings that
I feel when the roads rough

I gotta be tough with my eyes down
eyes down, eyes down
Strong in my stance with my eyes down
eyes down, eyes down

’Cause mom said
I’d be crossing borders
Never be afraid even
when you’re cornered
Stand up straight, fight your way
Fight your way, fight your way

Through the borders
Through the borders
Through the borders
Fight your way, fight your way (x2)

No, I won’t play pretend
I can’t pretend
There’s so much more up ahead
All that’s up ahead
No, I won’t play pretend
There’s so much more ahead

Through the borders
Through the borders
Through the borders
Fight your way, fight your way (x2)

Through the borders
Through the bordersfx amber borders (2)
