Don't Back Up

Updated on March 2, 2016

Tackle Life Head On

We see what we weren't prepared for

It is easy to run and hide

Take on courage as if was your wallet or pocketbook

You would not leave them behind

No matter what

Face life eye to eye

Toe to toe

When scared count to ten

You want to buy some time

We have done it our whole life

I know what it's like to pull back

Turn way

Knees buckling

My stomach sick and I feel like I'm going to throw up

Not easy

Fighting the fears of my past

Today's a new day

The past is just that

Memory that was

Feel the weight lifted off your shoulders

Just when you want to close your eyes

Open them wider

You are like the sun

It may be cloudy and a few showers

Now is your time to shine

One small step in the right direction

World of possibility awaits

Think of all the things you've done

Too many to count

With knowledge in hand

Shatter the glass ceiling

There is no holding you now

Break away

Make today special

The way you always wanted it to be

That's how you turn dreams into reality
