There is nothing like the pain of knowing
that you weren't quite good enough.
The heart you wear on your sleeve is showing
fighting so hard to be tough.
As humans we all make mistakes
they make us who we are.
Through good and bad we raise the stakes
but sometimes a bit too far.
I was taught in life you have to
work hard for what you want.
Nothing will be handed to you
its a fight that must be fought.
I tried so hard to be the person
you wanted me to be.
But in the end I realized
I lost a part of me.
So now I look in to your eyes
trying so hard not to show
The pain I have deep down inside
cause I have to let you go.
