Skidded down an abyss of trials
Since more than a decade ago.
Traversed with all the world’s pressures
On a path both long and slow.
Burdened with my spirit’s destruction,
Wondering how my life would be.
For so long I’ve waited for signs
Of the time when I would be free.
Now I’m clearing away the broken pieces and patching things up
I will resolve I for one and endeavor superiority.
I shall get to your feet and never will I all over again
Assent to all of your clobbering and all of your mockery.
I will show what I am made of
I will disclose what I have got.
And after everything’s done,
Let’s see who will still be around.
I’ve put up with the offenses
And ignored all the blemishes.
I am now up-and-coming
Putting out your pleading.
I’m still signing my song.
