By: Phillip S., Transformations alumnus
The strength to persevere in the face of danger and fear
In fact, it’s a noun, but it acts like a verb
It’s an action word
The courage to change the things I can; to take a stand
To be a man, to lend a helping hand; abandon my wasteland
Change may take action and action may take work
But what is our sanity actually worth?
What kind of legacy are we leaving on earth?
Everybody’s got something to say
Everybody replays the clichés
But our lip service is worthless it’s a dozen a dime
It’s our actions that echo in the halls of time
So I’m courageously changing my ways
My cravings have faded away
I’m behaving like I’m here to stay
And just for today, my foot’s outta the grave
I’m no longer a slave to my vice
I’m craving advice
I’m making the effort, attempting to reconcile my past
I’ve revived my inner child and smiled at last
The courage to change means turning the page
No longer the same, no one left to blame
See, in the end, even when we have plenty of serenity, our true identity emerges from the courage to change our ways.
