Very often. 

Very often I have found myself

Torn between two thoughts

Been guided and misguided

But lived through these lots. 

I have been struck down

And been discouraged to stand up. 

Very often, I have given away 

All that I ever desired.

To borrow a moment of happiness

To outgrow my skin, to move on

Very often I have left my past behind

But it always catches up

And pulls me down into darkness

I have been left desolate and forlorn.

Very often in such times

I have found my inspiration

Among these failures and setbacks

I discovered my motivation

Very often I have been defeated,

But never given up.
