Take a deep breath, remember your name
Lean into the mountain, and walk toward the flame
Don’t try to deny it, that’ll only make it worse
Just accept the treacherous ground to traverse
Build my heart an army, then brace it for impact
Leave it all on the field, but keep my dignity intact
And even if I’m broken, no matter how it hurts
My value is inherent; nothing changes my worth
So show your grit in those emotional climbs
And don’t be scared to fail; it happens all the time
Everybody loses, and everybody falls
And not taking the chance would be the saddest ending of all.
I’ve been to hell and back, this really should be cake
Still, my soul’s on the line, there’s so much at stake
But it’s a risk that I’ll take, the price I have to pay
And I KNOW it’ll pay off big one of these days!
