The Fall Down to New Heights –

A journey starts from the womb
With every year, a chance for gloom
Age 7, life is heaven
Age 13, not so keen
Now at 20, I am with my crew
Working hard, it’s what I do
27, out of the service looking for work
Looking back, I am happy I was not a jerk
3 jobs later, I am sitting with you all
After my life has taken a big fall
I look forward, to better things
As I get a new job and sprout new wings
I never quit from a fight
For I will overcome to reach New Heights
