I’m done wishing, I need to act.
Got to get myself back on track.
Got to stand up and start somewhere
Or else I’ll be stuck, I’ll be going nowhere.
If not now then I may not do it ever
Got to get a move on and never say never.
It’ll be hard, and that’s for sure
But I know what I must do, I must endure.
I’m done wishing and here’s my first act
To get myself back on track.
Gone are the days of sweet dreaming
Only realizing when it was too late
Over, I was head over heels then
Didn’t think it through
But I paid the price of deep hurt
Yet would choose to do it again
Even with all the brokenness
Life can be tricky
Offering you a piece, then taking it
Vowing to be stronger the next time
Eagerly waiting for the right one
For now, I’ll say a good goodbye love
Here’s to all the tears I used to cry
To all the pieces of my broken heart
To all the boys I felt was my end, that I’d die
And all the times I felt falling apart.
Here’s to what I’ve overcome so far
To getting up after being knocked down
To not giving up despite losing the war
Here’s to everything
Here’s to me!
Here I am trying to sort this out
Here I am trying to survive
Trying to understand what am I about
And withstand the dive
I often, if not always, get knocked down
I whimper and frown
But as life is like this,
I just get back up again
I keep trying
But it’s just too difficult this time
I take the deepest breath I ever took
Mustered all the courage I could find
Walked up what seemed to be miles
I stood in front of the tallest wall
Held my breath, took on the challenge
Row your boat as fast as you can
The tide is fighting back but you have to try
Try hard and work hard until your arms are sore
The only way to make it is to row your boat
One, two, three
You will no longer scare me.
Four, five, six
I’m picking up all my sticks.
Seven, eight, nine
I know I can do this and I’ll do just fine.
Ten is where I stop and tell Fear,
“You no longer have a hold on me, you hear!”
Why do you hesitate
Work on what you are passionate about
Travel the galaxy
Sip a cup of coffee at the Milky Way
Make it yours!
Take the opportunity
Stumble, fall, it happens
But get back up and try
Your misery is caused by your own
Think if you must
But once you’ve decided
Do not hesitate
Love came but I hid from it
My time with it is done.
I tried love
And I savored it
It was tasteful
It was savory
Succulent and sweet
But he was the wrong sort.
It was enough for me to try it once
And so, I hide from it until the time comes once more.
