If I were you

You are holding the world in your hands.
Life goes on and not always by your plans.
It was very hard where you came from.
Remember that, look how far you've come.

Lately, your finding the dark when its all bright.
Looking at all that's wrong, not all that's right.
Taking everything you have in vein.
Speaking, only to hear yourself complain.  

Do you remember how hard life used to be?
Looks whats around you now, and be happy.
What is it going to take for you to realize,
that life can go away in one blink of  your eyes.

So right now be grateful for the stars above.
Be happy to have people in your life you love.
If I could, I would make a perfect angel out of you.
I would just breathe and live the life that I wanted to
