I let my day become a shitty day

I forfeited my power, gave it away

I said to self, "Oh, it's okay"

Then huddled in a corner and cried.


I didn't have to take the bait, but I made that choice

I didn't have to fake it, but I stuffed my voice

But don't follow my example, remember girls and boys

Because Pity is a close companion of pride. 


There may well be bad days, sure, this can be true

But instead of choosing resignation there is something else to do

Honor yourself and keep in mind that you

Can choose what you allow inside.
