The shadows fell around me and darkened my blue sky
Doubts began to shake me and demons made me cry
Everywhere I turned there were warnings to beware
The day was just beginning with a darkness in its air.
Sometimes a day can linger in a painful atmosphere
And though we're seeking comfort it isn't what we hear
We wake up to a journey that challenges heart and mind
And so the day evolves and its treasures we must find.
Not every day is rosy or is every task a delight
Sometimes just waking up has its monsters we must fight
The task of every day and of every single hour
Is knowing when to surrender and when to hold the power.
