Be your own sunshine
Not everyday is happy day,
Things may sometimes be rough.
There are times when troubles come your way,
And the journey seems a little too tough.
The clouds of gloom surround you,
The darkness gives you a fear.
How to escape you have no clue,
You cry a silent tear.
You find no shoulder to lean on,
And there is no one to wipe your tears.
Realization then dawns,
You have to face your fears.
No one will fight your demons for you,
You are the one who must make things right.
During the storm if you have to sail through,
Don’t give up though your goal is not in sight.
No one will lead you out of darkness,
You must let your light shine.
In this world full of cold starkness,
You got to be your own sunshine.
