I lived


Heartache made me bitter

Lies made me cold

Disappointment created mountains

At the top I sat alone

 

Sadness turns into depression

Happiness seems so far away

But then something happens

And brings a smile to my face

 

My sad times never overcame happy times

But the pain they left were deep

But there was something marvelous

I learned in that recovery

 

I can feel so much happiness

I can feel so much pain

I can see tears fall from your eyes

And you can do the same

 

Each moment that made me bitter

Also made me feel alive

For the times I realized I wasn’t invincible

Were the times I sat down and cried

 

Pain makes me stronger

Situations help me grow

Everything that doesn’t kill me

Makes me more stronger than you’ll ever know

 

Heartache made me bitter

Lies made me cold

Disappointment created mountains

At the top I sat alone

 

But as I stand I now see

That I have survived with extraordinary skill

I rose up after each disappoint

And most importantly I learned to live
