A question of life

 

By doing what right
But only for me
I caused so much pain
But surely they see?
 
I had to do it
It had to be done
There was no way arround it
It wasn't for fun
 
The opportunity came round
I grabbed onto it tight
I wouldn't let go
Even when it did fight
 
With all of my mind
I hoped i was right
Would this be the change 
I've needed all of my life
 
It seems that it is
Its all working out
But those bitter feelings
Have yet to come out
 
They hate me, i see
For what i have done
For when i did it
And what i've become
 
But should i be sorry
For pushing myself
For trying my hardest
To better everyone else
 
Just 'cause they've given up
And accepted their fate
Do they want me to too?
Well i'm afraid its too late
 
I've grabbed hold of life
And will do all i can
To force it into submission
And make me all that i am
 
Just because i took chances
Does it mean that i'm wrong?
Does it mean i'm to blame 
For their failed life song?
 
They found a way
To make it through life
To never improve
These kinds of people are rife
 
I refuse to accept 
This is all that i am
I push myself to be better
To be a memorable man
 
Is that such a bad thing
To want to do more
To want to get better 
And try never to bore
 
Maybe i'm wrong
Maybe i should give in
Just take what i'm given
And let fates arms close in

Thanks, Glad somebody could get something out of it. It just sort of... falls out of my head and i go back and change a few words here and there afterwards, don't really think about it much if i'm honest.
I find its the best way to write something real and true to myself
