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.
