Illusions

November 19, 2010

Here I stand
Broken and jaded before you
Lost and unaided
Torn and persuaded
I’ve left all my troubles behind

You promise me heaven
But lead me to hell
And I know the secrets
You’ve hidden so well

You left me alone
Now I’m falling away
And all I have left
Are the memories we barely made

You had it all figured out
You thought no one would doubt
But what I believed to be true
It was all just a dream
That lived in me

Now my fingers on the trigger
The instrument of your demise
My tongue will no longer
Be a platform for your lies
Instead, a new life it will give rise

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you!

this was very good compared to your other ones
