Gettin it Over

How could I let this happen?
I let myself fall from grace.
I let drugs and alcohol control me.
They took me out of the race.

I just wanted to end the pain
that hurt so deep inside.
I wanted to escape realty.
It was my way that I could hide.

I don’t know how I didn’t realize
that I was making a huge mistake.
The addiction would consume me,
and eventually cause me to break.

I ruined many years of my life
And it’s something I can’t undo.
But I learned how to conquer it
I learned to start again anew.

I know now what I did was wrong
and have met my problems face-to-face.
I’m staying on the straight and narrow.
I will now live without the disgrace.

I am dealing with all the consequences,
and slowly I am turning my life around.
All I can do now is take it day by day
And hope they forgive me in this small town.
