Finally I've reached that day!
The one where I stand tall
Pondering with feet planted upon mountain peak,
What is important?
This comes from within;
A heart filled with strength
And courage and drive
Ambition, I'm steadfast and forward.
They can't hold me back this time
No, I'm telling you now;
Not a soul can hold me back!
Try if they must
Though without a doubt
It'll bounce back on them, not I.
I told you nothing.
Will pull me even a single step behind
'Cause your words were lies.
When you whispered you'd hold me,
Said "of course love, I'll be there"...
Yet you've no idea
The places I have been
And you weren't the shoulder
Upon which those heavy drops fell
Oh God! They were so endless and heavy!
That though, is the past now,
Won't catch me a-dwelling!
You were nowhere to be found...
This time though I'll not know despair
This is my time
There is one single difference;
For this round, my expectations
Are of self, coming from within
I need not a soul else.
Mark here; they'll regret denying me
Now I will shine and I will outshine!
The limelight, going forward,
It is mine, all mine!
