The fight between what’s right and what is wrong,
To choose this disc or jam to other songs,
To listen to some pop or maybe rock,
To wear the purple t-shirt with these socks,
To do what others say or look inside,
To choose your words from self-doubt or from pride.
To paint a masterpiece or use crayons,
To tan at a salon or use spray-on,
Or maybe to use neither or use both,
To back away or take the sacred oath,
To eat a sandwich or buy greasy fries,
To tell the truth or live on only lies,
To curse a lot or punch hard at a wall,
To use courage or succumb to the fall,
To speak your mind or keep it to a squeak,
Or just embrace the fact it’s not your week.
Struggles tend to keep us up at night,
Like this vs. that or getting things just right.
People ask for answers and I show ‘em.
‘Cuz I end all my struggles with a poem.
