When you take a tumble back into the life you once lived

The time it takes to heal is so long.

I'm fading away like the sound of a gong.

It feels so good to escape,

But then the aftermath feels like a rape.


If I'm not careful I won't want to comply

With the way I need to live my life.

I can't just party and wonder why

There is so much blunder and strife.


I have to work harder to make it right.

Or I will struggle to keep up the fight.

I can't simply just walk away

From all the choices I have made.


If it was that easy, I wouldn't be who I am today.

Life is hard and so it shall be

That I don't stray too far away.

At least, hopefully...


I feel as though I already have.

I'm not so sure I can go back.

I hope it all goes ok as I will try.

Things are different, I'm not gonna lie.


Everytime I give in, I die a little inside.

Damaged goods as the saying goes.

I barely can hang on for the ride.

But like a roller coaster it gradually slows.


It comes to a point that I have to confess.

That I have been a wretched mess.

After the high, I come down and can't believe what I've done.

I pray for forgiveness but still I'm not the only one.


At least, I can rest in God's peace.

He is strong when I am weak.

I can fall into his arms and be at ease.

I'm still his, and this life is just a sneak peek.
