Facing it Now

Updated on November 24, 2014

Apologies for my quietness of late! I've recently begun a new course in professional writing and it's taking up a lot of my inspiration so there hasn't been much left for articles and poetry.

Anyway, to make it up to you, here's a song.

I recently went through a breakup and I'm finally ready to share some stuff that I've been writing out of it. I've been doing a lot of rethinking about who I am, so it's made for some pretty decent writing material.

Listen while you read!

Facing it Now

I remember that time we all stood in a line,

And as the rest of you faced forward, I looked to the side.

A few moments later, when you all smiled,

I frowned, cause I just couldn't understand why.


And I guess that if things don't seem right

There must be a reason why

It's easy to turn a blind eye


But I made the decision to start from the beginning

And try to figure out what it was that started this off.

But then, just as I thought I was winning,

I realised this battle was one that I shouldn't fight.


And I guess that if things don't seem right

There must be a reason why

It's easy to turn a blind eye


But I'm facing it now, and I'm admitting to myself,

I couldn't see because I turned away, that was all me.

And it's about time that I questioned why

There was this tiny little part of me inside that had any doubt.


And I guess that if things don't seem right

There must be a reason why

It's easy to turn a blind eye

But I'm facing it now.


And at the end of the day, at least I am happy.

But wouldn't it be nice if someone could share that with me?

But I don't know if I can make that happen

If no one understands what it is that I believe.


And I guess that if things don't seem right

There must be a reason why

It's easy to turn a blind eye


But I'm facing it now, and I'm admitting to myself,

I couldn't see because I turned away, that was all me.

And it's about time that I questioned why

There was this tiny little part of me inside that had any doubt.


And I guess that if things don't seem right

There must be a reason why

It's easy to turn a blind eye


But I'm coming out now. Away from this shelter.

Away from this stupid little fence that I've been sitting on

Wishing for better.


And I'm facing it now, and I'm admitting to myself,

I couldn't see because I turned away, that was all me.

And it's about time that I questioned why

There was this tiny little part of me inside that had any doubt.


And I guess that if things don't seem right

There must be a reason why

It's easy to turn a blind eye

But I'm facing it now.

      Welcome back Amy. What a wonderful hub, and sorry to hear about your breakup but thanks for sharing this great song. Your voice and style remind me of an Australian singer named Missy Higgins. Well done. Voted up.
