In this life of mine, it took so long to get where I needed to be
These chains, they kept me on the ground
My world came crashing down on me
I found my crutch, a new hope to believe in

I watched the way you fall
I watched the way you let go

A glass shatters, I’ve seen you fall apart, I’ve picked up the pieces
To see such a monument, I’ve caught a sight of who I shouldn’t be
Without your guidance, I still know right from wrong
And with this voice, I’m definitely making a positive choice, a glimpse of who I really am

All of this has made who I am today
I’ve waited for so long for an answer
It’s all clear to me now, I finally know who I am

The life of a man, the mirror in front of my face
My new life has been brought to mind
So many years of conflict it took me to find

Here’s to the boy you once knew

I watched you run away
I watched the way you let go
False steps of many miles you’ve traveled

(Gerry of These Lights Above Us)
I will keep carrying this torch, forever burning so bright
My youth, I’m here to take it back for good

Corrupted promises, I conquered through
Your mountains of disappointments, I finally know who I am

The right direction, here’s a new man

Instead of dwelling on the past, or someone’s mistake, use it as an advantage to learn from the mistakes and realize it. Growing up, my father wasn’t there for me. I waited for so long for answers and everyday I asked why he never wanted me to be a part of his life. I overcame through it, and told myself that I won’t ever take the same path as he did. When I have my own children, I know I’ll be there for them.

I’ll be a more of a man than my father could ever be.
