Perfect Timing

Location

What do you see when you look at her Most would say a soldier indeed


But behind every smile is a story


She writes her book day by day making


her own moral for every page


 


 


To everyone else she's lucky


To them good words are all she speaks


They admire her pride and dedication


They only see good no dissatisfaction


She writes her book day by day making her own moral for every page


 


 


To her perspective, she is lonely


In her mind she is confused


She helps everyone else so much she forgot to follow the clues


She's so use to helping others win she didn't realize who really was losing


She writes her book day by day making her own moral for every page


 


 


She replays her grandmother's last words everyday


She wonders will she ever be eligible for a break


Sometimes she sits n her room and shed a few tears


After all who knew pain could last that many years


Lets just say she omits in self pity


She writes her book everyday making her own moral for every page


 


When everyone else has succeeded She is stuck at square one all by herself


See what people fail to realize behind every wide smile is a even bigger frown


Even the best has a worst


She writes her book day by day making her own moral for every page


 


Time continued without her


But since she wrote her book making her own moral for each page


She stopped time


till she caught up and overcame every odd


Now nobody can say she was lost in time


After all she did write her book day by day making her own moral for every single page
