A Better Life

 

A better life awaits you.  It’s time to say goodbye

            To that same old broken record playing, “Give it one more try.”

 

There really is a limit.  No more - enough’s enough.

            “How long will you be shackled to the same old harmful stuff?”

 

A better life awaits you.  It’s time to end this ride.

            You’re too close to turn back now.  Gods’ love is on your side.

 

It’s taken you a while, but I think you finally see -

            This cycle must be broken for your spirit to be free.

 

A better life awaits you.  It’s time for a new way.

            Believe in what your gut says.  It all will be okay.

 

Move on.  You must let go.  This road is a dead end -

            Too many cracks and potholes, too many to defend.

 

No matter how you say it, the message remains clear:

            “End that which you must and watch your dreams start to appear.”
