New Day

It's a new day and a new me, I open my eyes
See a new world, built on truth and integrity instead of lies

Having forgotten all I knew, now it's time to relearn
Peace of mind is the treasure I'm after, grabbin' my pen

And buildin' roads on my paper to leave and never return
My time is precious and runnin' out, I won't waste it again

Sharin' my thoughts only with those who really know what I'm sayin'
Now I'm standin' behind my words, what it takes to be a man

I saw the Sun giving a light I had never seen before
Silence my brain and starve my ego when I'm askin' for more

A day like this it's easy for me to forgive all my sins
I'm only human after all, livin' life chasin' my dreams

And I won't fake it, I'll make it or happily die tryin'
For more than three decades I have been walkin' a fine line

Between stayin' true to myself and livin' a life that's not mine
This is a new day, I'm no longer afraid of the night

It's never too late to start over

Time is an illusion.

Place to start

When everything falls apart, you know that something great is about to happen. Embrace the challenge and dance in the rain, cause the Sun is always there even if hidden behind the clouds. You may not be able to see it, but this doesn't mean it's not there. You can't see ultraviolet light either, but we do know it's there, and we can prove it.

Same goes for your guardian Angel, and the demons watching over your way and messing with your mind and life. You can keep moving on as long as there's hope, and there's always hope as long as there's love. That's the finest gold, and money can't buy it.

Just like it can't buy you memories and life experiences. Every day is a new chance to learn and earn, a new chance to start over again. Today is the first day of the rest of your life, and you can choose to make this the first day of a new chapter in your life. A glorious one. The past doesn't exist anyway. It only lives inside your mind.

Don't like your past? Then kill the fucker. Delete everything weighing heavy on your soul. You don't have to keep living that same life that brought you to your knees. If you don't like the hand you were dealt, then fold it and wait for the next one. Make this the day you took charge and erased all negative thoughts standing in your way.

Can't do it? Don't have the strength to make the first step? Too tired to take action or even plan? Take the day off. Tomorrow is going to be another great opportunity to begin a new journey. Be ready. But first, cut yourself some slack and take a deep breath.

I appreciate your time.
