I’m all talk and no action
Can’t seem to make a reaction
To the situations I am in.
I try to break free
I try to be me
But I fail yet again.
I can’t seem to hold on
To what I believe

There’s a whole world to see
So I’ve got to face my fears
I know who I can be
I’ve been trapped all these years.
It’s time to stand up
No more givin' up
I am here to stay
Tomorrow’s another day.

I’ve said this so many times before
But it never seemed to be an open door
Until now.
I’m gonna face the crowd
No more backin' out
I am here now.
But I still can't seem to hold on
To what I believe.

There’s a whole world to see
So I’ve got to face my fears
I know who I can be
I’ve been trapped all these years.
It’s time to stand up
No more givin' up
I am here to stay
Tomorrow’s another day.

So here I go
But just to let you know
I’m afraid.
I’m about to jump
I’m through with givin' up
It’s time to seize the day.
It seems I can hold on
To what I believe
Now it’s time to succeed.

There’s a whole world to see
So I’ve got to face my fears
I know who I can be
I’ve been trapped all these years.
It’s time to stand up
No more givin' up
I am here to stay
Tomorrow’s another day.

Favorite Quote:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take... but by the moments that take your breath away.

This is a great poem! I really like it, and love the fact that it is very optimistic. Never giving up is hard to do, it takes courage, and this poem demonstrates it perfectly! Keep writing!
