Until I Can Learn To Respect My Life

The day is rising slowly
I don’t know what I am to expect
today I could breach the sound
and deny the life surrounding me
today the water I know is cold
today my life is the same
and today I’ll find me
where I can learn to respect my life
today the world is turning out
to go faster than what I please
I can’t wait any longer
to put my heart at ease
and I don’t want to be the only one speeding up
and I refuse, I won’t be
the one to be left behind
today I don’t know anything and today is so short
and tomorrow could hold anything
and for this I give you my word
the earth is spinning so fast
it’s making my heart hot with ambition
and tomorrow will bring me shame
so I will learn to respect my life
