I have to look on the bright side
to think of the good things in my life
for I am healthy and being my best
I know I cannot control the rest
I can just try every day to progress
to feel the love and feel that I am blessed.
I have seen disparity and poverty in other lands
I have seen dishonesty and hatred firsthand
I chose to leave so I could continue to expand
my own horizons even though they are unplanned.
I just know that the storms are almost over
as I start a brand new chapter
of my life as I gain closure
relinquishing any pent up anger
embracing my new future.
Sunny days and blue skies are ahead
I am trading them for the rain and thunder instead
So I can feel the love surround my heart and my head
because I have to enjoy this life before I am dead.
