Turn your words into action
Its time to turn your words into action.
Start the formula for the chain reaction.
Nothing will be easy about the path you've chosen.
You need to break through the ice, become unfrozen.
Its time to choose, now or never.
Break the chains, start the endeavor.
When everything is against you and everyone expects you to lose.
You can never give in, you must refuse.
Show them you will no longer take the abuse.
You'll hang your head high, without their noose.
During the hardest times, stand up and proclaim,
I'll make it through this, you will remember my name.
Each day you know its real by the pain you feel.
Even the deepest unseen wounds, will one day heal.
No matter how far or close you are to the finish line,
don't let anyone hold you back, say victory is already mine.
