I’d say that I don’t mean to brag
Though boastings my intent
It’s just that, unlike some people,
With myself I am content.
Not to mean that I don’t find
Errors in my way;
All the grains of sand wouldn’t suffice
The mistakes made in my day.
But there come a time when one must decide
What road that one should take,
And me, I chose to better myself,
Not for anyone else, but my own sake.
And though at times I tumble down
To the darkness and despair,
The light of hope calls me up
Despite the weights I bear.
