FULL CIRCLE

 

In a flash, it all comes back

Every harsh word, every act

A volatile past I just can’t shake

Trusting you my biggest mistake

 

I will not let you drag me under

I will not falter, I will not blunder

 

Back to where the darkness waits

Open armed to tempt my fate

Your voice holds no power here

No one to listen, follow or adhere

 

I will not let you drag me under

I will not falter, I will not blunder

 

Retreat back to your addict ways

Enjoy your life enjoy the craze

No one will listen to you shout

You have no power and no clout

 

I will not let you drag me under

I will not falter, I will not blunder

 

The truth revealed to everyone

All your deceit and lies unspun

Full circle has come around

Of pain inflicted, I must expound

 

I will not let you drag me under

I will not falter, I will not blunder

 

My part and responsibility accepted

My life story exposed -preempted

Disarming your weapon of choice

Leaving deaf ears to hear your voice

 

I will not let you drag me under

I will not falter, I will not blunder

 

Some wounds even time won’t heal

Still too painful still too real

However, you should know

I was sad to see you go

 

But I could not let you drag me under

I refused to falter, I refused to blunder

 

I could not allow you to drag me under

Even though broken, my heart asunder

Yes, I fell down and started to go under

But stood back up; quick as thunder

 

I will never let you drag me under

I refuse to falter, I refuse to blunder
