"You May Encounter Many Defeats But You Must Not Be Defeated" By- Dr. Maya Angelou

Day After Day
I Ask God For The Same Thing To Help Me Change My Ways
As I Look In The Mirror And Watch My Reflection My Insides Seem To Tumble
As My Words Come Out They Seem To Stumble
You Don't Know How Many Times Suicide Has Been On My Mind
I Am At The Point In My Life When My Life Is On The Line
There Is No One Here I Can Turn To
These People Just Know What The Hell I Am Going Through
I Close My Eyes At See My Life Passing Me By
I Wonder If I Had Lived My Life Right
