Looking back

At times or days i feel like stone
Not moving for the better always 
alone.
i ask questions; hoping to unlock an 
answer
If no reason is found, there is 
another
Day to understand, why am i 
troubled.
If it was easy it would've been 
revealed
Nothing good ever comes easily
But lies come before truth so freely.
What am i doing in this mood?
Where’s my happiness; my good?
Finding myself following the lost,
But when do i get to be the boss.
It’s my life i am suppose to live
But by the examples others give.
Following because it made a change
But it's your effort that made the 
grade.
Get up, get out, and change it up,
God is ready if you are done giving 
up.
Stuck in the "why is my life that's so 
wrong?"
But the problem is we've waited too 
long. 
Time to react and stop licking your 
wounds,
Take the chance overcome your 
dues.
Today’s a new day to make it right,
Show them all the truth to spite.
No longer stone to find our resolve,
It’s self so the problem can be 
solved.
The answers today to the questions 
I ask,
New direction; So I’m not looking 
back...
