Overcoming

I could have had a something
I could have been a somebody
But I had to learn how to have
Something that was worth everything,
I had to learn that nothing was the start
Of something, I had to learn to ask to
Not get out of the pain, I had to learn to
Get out of thinking that out of it was not
Part of it—through and through was the
Way to live and to be, so get this church
Burn the torch to easy and swift and
Fast—outlast that kind of thinking,
Give in to overcoming
