ďIt Was All About Survival4/11/2004
I lost it all - I lost everything.
It was all about survival.
I had choices back then,
And once I made them
They could never be undone.
I had to let go of some things -
Like jumping a sinking ship -
before it goes down!
I had to grab onto new people, places and things.
I wonít lie and tell you it didnít hurt-
Hell itís a constant ache to this day.
I let go of everything I thought was me or mine
And grabbed onto a new way of life!
Thereís not much else I have left to say, today.
I did it for me, and it had to be this way.
Today, Iím a survivor that gave up a life-
I gave up the old agonizing one, full of strife.
I gave up and surrendered in utter despair-
And when I closed the door on my old way of life-
I looked and there was a new life waiting for me right here!
