Ups and downs,

All around,

Don’t take me back,

Don’t let me drown,

This time was a tale of someone lost,

They didn’t know it so they had to pay a cost,

And now in the present the debts are due,

I’m paying with my pride and yes it’s true,

That I learned my lesson and I’m stronger now,

No more tears and no more frowns,

Everything happens for a reason,

So there was significance in each season.

Spring brought me flowers and showed me love,

Summer broke my heart and left me stuck in the mud,

Fall picked me up and taught me how to push through,

Winter tested me and my answer was move.

Never stay still never give up,

Always aim higher and you’ll never be stuck.
