My Troubled Friend

“What’s the point in even trying?
When only guarantee is dying?”
My friend, I wish that you could see
Everything you’re here to be

People ‘round you truly care
You have a gift you’re here to share
Don’t give up you’ve come so far
There’s more to life than chasing cars

When the demons start to talk
Listen close, then say f^@$ off
Good or evil, it’s your choice
Who you decide to fuel your voice

So much of life you can control
Sometimes you’ve gotta slow your roll
Must love yourself before another
It's more fulfilling you'll discover

Get back up when you fall down
And know that love will be around
