Failure Before Success

Failure Before Success

So here, I am today
Didn’t imagine that things would bet this way
Thought everything would turn out right
Thought finally I would see the light
But

I  won’t stay down
I haven’t given up
When I see how far I’ve come
When I see how others been blessed
I know,
There will always be failure
Before success

So here, I stand today
In a stark room that would be better off grey
Thought everything would be all right
Thought finally I could sleep at night
But

I won’t stay down
I haven’t given up
When I see how far I’ve come
When I see how others been blessed
I know,
There will always be failure
Before success

I have seen the raging storms
Heard laughter from humility to be scorned
I have seen life from the outside
I have been lost without a guide…
But
I did survive
I did stay alive

I won’t stay down
I haven’t given up
When I see how far I’ve come
When I see how others been blessed
I know,
There will always be failure
Before success
