I could crash and burn
Or I could choose to learn
From things that happen in my life.
I could choose to be ignorant
And be kind of of insolent,
Acting as if there were no lessons to be learnt.
Or I could choose to see my flaws
Understand where I was at fault,
Learn how to get it right in future,
Then no one needs get hurt.
I could shrivel in denial,
Or I could grow at least for a while
And be stronger, not so weak,
Where it is light, rather than bleak,
And we are powerful not meek,
Where in time we can discover what we seek,
In those lessons which we learnt.
