I Will Make It

I Will Make It

I know I’ve been saying this for a long time
The same things, going round and round in my head
At times it looks like the promises, the hopes, the dreams
The endless beliefs
Would never end

I took a rest, I took a break
While others watch on by
Deciding my fate
They say
I won’t change
I won’t go anywhere
It’s too late

But surely I know
I will get there
Whether by noon, or by night
I will get there surely by morning light
Whether through the rain, or the snow
I will make it, for this I’m sure

Years and years visited me so swift
I felt all the fatigue of trial and error
Faced all my fears and terrors
There were times when it seem, I left and ran away
To a quiet place
To never show my face again

I took a rest, I took a break
While others watch on by
Deciding my fate
They say
I won’t change
I won’t go anywhere
It’s too late

But surely I know
I will get there
Whether by noon, or by night
I will get there surely by morning light
Whether through the rain, or the snow
I will make it, for this I’m sure

How much time do I have
With this one life
How can I count the days
The many opportunities
That surely will come my way
I can’t say
I can’t know
Only for today
I know what to do
And that’s to live in the truth

I know…surely I know
I will get there
Whether by noon, or by night
I will get there surely by morning light
Whether through the rain, or the snow
I will make it, for this I’m sure

For this I’m sure
