If you’ve given yourself to nothing
Then don’t let nothing get you down
Go give yourself to something
There’s so much of it around.
Set out your building blocks
But don’t build too many walls
It’s good to be hit and rocked
Not be stopped, barely stalled.
We can’t duck all the blows
You’ve to take some to win a fight
Embrace the highs don’t run from lows
By building the walls that block out life.
Learn from every loss
Till you love it like a tutor
Then don’t spare a second thought
For anything but your future.
Give yourself to something
And it gives back in wondrous ways
And out of nothing comes this something
Relieved you smile, knowing nothing would of been good if it stayed.
