The Fall

I thought I knew what I was dealing with
But now, I’m not so sure

Thought I knew what I was doing
But not anymore

‘Cause things have changed
Rearranged

I can feel the difference

Used to know the score
And what it stood for

But now I’m stuck on the fence

And I can’t stop flailing
Though I know I’m failing

Feel like the whole world’s come out to see
Me

Fall

To see me fall

But I’m still holding tight

Not gonna let go,
at least not tonight

I won’t go down without a fight

I’m trying to
Brave the storm

To not
Break or reform

But changes have been made
And I’m trying not to fade

But it gets harder every day
The storm won’t go away

I’m trying to keep my fears at bay

But I’m still holding tight

Not gonna let go,
At least not tonight

I won’t go down without a fight

And all those who were against me
All those who said I’d die peacefully
I’ll show you who I can be

Cause I be givin’ it my all
Yeah, I’ll be giving it my all
I’ll be giving it my all…

‘Till I…
Fall

I looked through your poems, and they are very good! You were right, I liked them a lot!
I hope you have a chance to take a look at some of my other works, especially 'Birds and the Bees' 'Big Sister' and 'Goodbye Love'. If you have time to read more I would really appreciate it!!!
