Branded by my past, I stand in the ring of love
Like a punch drunk fighter, wondering who’s to blame
Sure, I lost a couple of big ones, I hit the mat hard
But I had no trainers in the battle of love
So I stepped in a ring with some real pros and got beat
Now I stand girded for battle with new knowledge
My old pains and scars look unsightly to some
So now I’ve dropped my past, but it won’t drop me
What am I to do now ?
Am I a loser for trying ?
Do I set my sights low, because my history was hard ?
Or, do I still fight with all my resources at hand !
Find my serenity in my final stand !!!
