My New Life



It will happen or not happen
Then I will wait for tomorrow
I'll never stop mooning the sunrise
And the continual flow of the river
Could I be content until tomorrow ease my mind
Concussion to my brain
They condemn me to death
But what did I do
"Everyone has something great to offer," someone said.
Bewildered by my focus blurred
Establish oneself beyond dispute
What are the rules of right and wrong
Calculating the opinion about how many, how much
Scare to succeed
Fear to believe
