When life throws you a curve ball 
Will you miss, slip, and fall 
Will you even make it to the plate 
Knowing all the pressure 
And all of the weight 
Will the ball strike you in the back 
Because of the knowledge that you lack 
When life runs you straight into the ground 
Will you have enough strength 
To come back around 
Will you hit a home run 
Will you have fun 
Or will the game just be done 
Will you end up safe 
Will you strike out 
Or will you just go another route 
Because of all your doubt
