SORROW MAN

 

Turning the page today in sight of a better me

Ready, willing to accept the pain

Cutting corners was a way of life

Until all that I knew was sleepless nights

So I find myself with a choice to make (I choose to live)

 

I lived my life in fear

Trying to crawl up for air

But now I know that the source of my sorrow is clear

I will not turn away, won’t try to numb all the pain

 

Blindly we follow the lead in hopes that we finally see

Shaking, wavering with uncertainty

I thought that I couldn't change; it’s not that I couldn't change. I’m just afraid of change, give me the courage to change.

 

I lived my life in fear

Trying to crawl up for air

But now I know that the source of my sorrow is clear

I will not turn away, won’t try to numb all the pain

 

When they face me with those eyes of contempt, I will remember these words.
