I Am

I HAVE BEEN THERE,FELT IT ALL
BUT I REFUSE TO BE PASSIVE ANYMORE.
LIFE HAS HIT ME MANY TIMES,
I'M SO GLAD,I DIDN'T LOSE MY MIND.

LIFE IS FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS,
THINKING OF WHICH MY STOMACH CHURNS.
BUT THERE'S A THRILL IN WALKING DOWN THE STREET,
FOR AROUND THE CORNER THERE MIGHT BE A TREAT.

CHILDHOOD STORIES HAS SANTA AND FAIRIES,
ALAS,THAT'S NOT ALL TO LIFE DEARIES.
I WISH I WAS TOLD ABOUT THE DEMONS WHEN YOUNG,
I WOULD HAVE KEPT BETTER WEAPONS IN MY TRUNK.

I KNOW I CAN'T CHANGE IT ALL,
BUT I WON'T LET THE CURTAINS FALL.
THERE'S A LOT OF PAIN THAT LIFE BRINGS,
BUT AFTER EVERY WINTER COMES THE SPRING.

I WON'T LET SADNESS DWELL IN MY HEART,
FOR I WILL MAKE A FRESH START.
I WANT TO BE "THAT CHANGE" ,YOU SEE!
AND I WILL MAKE SURE EVERYBODY AGREES.
