Deep in a valley of sorrows you drown

As you lift your head up

The enemy pushes you down

You can’t even begin to speculate

Why such anger fuels so much hate

Your wish is to put the past aside

But grudges tend to abide

In your heart you feel the ache

Some days you don’t know

How much more you can take

Your goal is to make an escape

Getting out alive before it’s too late

You don’t wish to loathe or curse anymore

You want to show the enemy to the door

To get out and leave you be

From evil clutches set you free

Evicting your mind from low self-esteem

Hoping to replace failures with new dreams

The door IS open so get out of the way

Keep on moving to a brand new day

See the problem isn’t him, her or them

Honestly, truthfully the enemy is within

No confidence, security or self-validation

Constantly you’ve got yourself on observation

It’s not the time to worry about others opinions

They aren’t worrying about you it’s

Their own lives they’re living

Now you got the epiphany

You’ve read the memo

Get out of your own way

Finally….LET IT GO!
