Is It Worth It

Often times in life we get off track
when things don't go our way
So we take that route to do what we want
regardless of what someone else may say
Maybe it was our parents or even a teacher
that tried hard to keep us straight
But we thought we knew what was right
not realizing laid ahead a bait

I can remeber the times I carried a blade
but what was I proving, I didn't have it made
And now when I look back why did I carry it for
you know we do foolish things to even the score

My life was in shambles-
I didn't see it right then
To me I thought it was perfect
until it almost came to an end

So many times I was in danger-
not seeing the signs ahead
That the road I chose was full of troubles
but I pretend all was well instead

I took a lot for granted-
my freedom was wasted and spent
And those friends I had was just as bad
never once enter our minds to repent

Our idle times came to naught-
and we thought that we were cool
We dipped and dived and played our jive
and not long I dropped out of school

But there came a better end to this story
I was given a chance to make it right
And today I am thankful for having a career
and have no more need to fight

There's no bargaining with death once it's over
so why not change your directions today
Give yourself a chance, to see the future
be that light to lead others your way

To take down doesn't make you a coward
you still have what it takes to win
And you can use that wisdom that comes from God
to bring forth, for you, a btter end
