What can’t you do?
Your strength is true
There’s no one else that can be you
One of a kind
You’d lose your mind
Watching another flying blind

Playing your role in life
Navigating your strife
Going under the knife?
Imagine someone giving up

Deciding on new dreams
Then bursting at the seams
And failing harshly
Of frustration just watching this

Your life is yours, the pain and bliss
Watching it pass should feel amiss
One life we get to live
Surrender, trust, forgive

Yeah things may not be perfect
But living on is worth it
I’m glad you’re here
Though it’s not clear

Exactly why
I hope you try
To make the most
To feel engrossed
In everyday

Find states of play
And say what’s on your chest
Because you are the best
There could be
Life’s full of possibilities

Are yours to make
Each chance you cross
Is your to take
Life has it lows
That’s how it goes

But one thing that I must propose
Take it down a notch or two
There’s only so much you can do

Can you let go?
Make room to grow?
You’re so amazing, don’t you know?
