I’ll put one foot forward and change my fate,
Set sail on a new course and make my life great!
Whatever happens next comes down to me,
I’m going to become all I can be!
It’s time to take action, become someone new,
My days of self pity are truly through!
I have to stand taller on my own two feet,
I will not be defeated, knocked down or beat!
I’ll write a new chapter and turn things around,
I’ll unlock potential; explore new ground.
I’ll rise from the darkness and into the light,
I’m not going down without one hell of a fight!
Each day from now is a new chance to shine,
To chase down my dreams and make them mine!
To laugh, to smile to flourish and play,
To live my life and seize the day!
