I needed room to breathe and I took it
Doubt lingered in my heart, so I shook it
I spent some time focusing on the things I love
Focusing attention where it was deserved
Helped greater clarity be learned
Stop needing wants and goals may be earned
Be better to everyone, let go of bridges burned
Close your eyes as they turn and settle to dust
With your hands to your chest take a deep breath and know it’s best
Find solace knowing your creation deviates from the rest
Discover excitement though passion pursued before depression insists its test
Elude those persistent to bring you down
Exude positive energy and inspire it around!
If you’re miserable then perhaps it’s time you leave town!
If music fills you with joy then perhaps it’s time you share the sound
If you were given life I recommend you live it before buried in the ground
If you are falling to pieces find the people that will help you pick them up!
If it is too late for you then I guess we don’t need to hear it?
Hearts break, life goes on, why fear it?
Apathy may not break but it sure will forsake
Uninspired living won’t be your demise but it will be your disguise
Greed may not end your days but it will be the death of a child who can only pray
Cowardice will not be etched in your gravestone but it may encourage that you die alone
Life is given and it can be taken
But love and memories will be left behind
Goodness will last the test of time
My dreams will be mine
I am alive.
