Inspired by the songs of Alter Bridge (Metalingus) & Creed (Weathered)
I lie awake on a long dark night.
I can’t seem to tame my mind.
Keep dwelling on what might have been.
But can’t let regret waste my life again.
I’ve been defeated and brought down.
Dropped to my knees when hope ran out.
The time has come to change my ways.
To look upon the future for brighter days.
I now see clearly everything I don’t want in life.
To leave it all behind, the agony and the strife.
No bitter place and not a broken dream.
To only hear the angels sing and not the demons scream.
But when the ashes fell, it gave my soul the chance to rise.
What’s done is done, it won’ t be my demise.
So I press forward towards a goal to achieve.
For success can only exist when we choose to believe.
