I didn’t always love you as I do now.
I didn’t always listen to you.
I didn’t always follow your commands.
I went so far as to tell you, “Leave me alone.”
I broke promises to you and didn’t always keep my word,
I was so full of myself and I felt I needed no one.
I thought I could do things my way and on my own.
I know I disappointed you and hurt you.
I didn’t give you my whole heart like I should,
I am not where I should be, but I’m not where I was before.
I still struggle with myself every day.
There are still hills to climb and valleys to walk through.
Up ahead, I see a mountain top that I have to climb.
The odds seems insurmountable and it’s a big obstacle.
I will overcome it because—I Tried.
So I won’t give up and I won’t quit.
When others fall by the way, I will carry on.
I will not let others dictate to me how my life will be.
I will stand tall and I will be victorious because—I Tried
