I knew I had to change it, but I was stalling because…

The pain of staying the same was not yet greater than the pain it would take to change, although it was trying
The universe was playing a mighty fine game of hard ball
And I was determined to still hang on
I had a few ounces of energy left in my beaten down spirit
And its not like me to give up unless I’m totally broken
So, I live on to fight another day
Determined to see it through
Sick with fear of uncertainty
But, I can still breathe my next breath
So carry on I will
