Why does life become so hard
Leaving you with memories starred.
I have given up so many times before
But I woke up wanting to have done more.
My recent mistake may take time
to really recover from that steep climb.
I have lost everything dear to me
And yet, I am still able to see.
I can see where I went wrong
yet somehow remaining strong.
I lost my way somewhere
but I found myself in the middle of nowhere.
This can’t be my end
I am my only friend.
This is something I have to do alone
Wishing I knew what I should have known.
But there is hope that I can see
Watching my life decisions branch out like a tree
I will break through what I can not bend
I know exactly how my life will spend.
When life gives you lemons
Stop and find your rhythm
Then instead of lemonade, make sweet tea
then make a memorable treaty
with yourself and with your life
Beginning now this endless night
I will be the best version of me
I will be making my own tea
Even with all those mistakes
I will do whatever it takes.
I won’t let it keep my down
or do anything that makes me frown
It is time I took a stand
And go for the life I had always planned.
dedicated to my grandmother and to my best friend Jenny
