Whether You Fall

Daily Prompt: Your Life, the Book

From a famous writer or celebrity, to a WordPress.com blogger or someone close to you — who would you like to be your biographer?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.


I would have my kids write my story. And my husband.  They have been there for the whole story, the good, the bad, and the ugly.  They know me at my best and my worst.  And I love them all!  

This painting is from my oldest Daughter.  She made it when she was in High School and it was inspired by the Tracy Bonham song, “Whether You Fall”.  I needed this song and painting many times in my life.  And the video still makes me cry! Thanks Jen!


By Tracky Bonham

Whether it’s the sunshine
Whether it’s the rain
Doesn’t make a difference
Till you complain
Whether it’s the water comin’ in from the roof
Does it piss you off
That you’re not waterproof?
Whether you fall
Means nothing at all
It’s whether you get up
It’s whether you get up
And you hate the silence
As it fills up the room
And there’s not much to say
To your blushing groom
Maybe all eyes are on you
As you finish the race
And the world sees you struggling
For last place
Whether you fall
Means nothing at all
It’s whether you get up
It’s whether you get up
Whether you fall
Means nothing at all
Whether you get up
Whether you get up
