Life Always Finds A Way: Overcome

[center]


[b]I'm done.

In fact, I am beyond it.

I played the game and paraded the stage only to be taken from it.

Each circumstance occurred by chance, and out of fear or indecision, I never did join the dance.

Maybe there was much that I missed?

Maybe there was more I could have down with my time whilst it was firmly in my fists?

I just wish regret didn't rain down like a cloud that haunts and taunts me wherever I walk.

Even more than that, I wanted to speak without being judged when I talked.

That fine fellow that takes pleasure in my misadventures has laughed for years and still makes a joke out of me when I should be the presenter.

That's a self-loathing I wish to shed, and one that only destroys people from the inside if they get stuck inside their own head.

What do you do when you have next to nothing to lose?

You were robbed of everything with no remorse, and they are coming for that last bit of your sanity of course.

To lie down and cry would only amplify how helpless your situation is.

You could do that or you could fight back, or even better, make a stance like no one else ever has.

Vow to yourself to do everything you say, let the smallest words carry weight, and once confessed you have to uphold it before the end of your days.

Beg your bones to carry you home when you feel like you have nowhere else to go.

If you don't have one, then make one of your own.

As nature reclaims what was taken from it, do it in small steps, and don't ever boast on your achievements as they could appear counterfeit.

Count on it, or learn to count again, to trust yourself, and to trust your friends.

Only then can you find the strength to leave this dead end and start again.

I am not in any way perfect, nor do I feel like I am anywhere close.

I do aim for better as often as I can, and knowing the world will always exist, I will always have hope.

Do what you have to do and get it done, and each obstacle ahead will be one you can overcome.[/b][/center]
