Carpe diem More Strength to your elbow

It took a lot of practice to become this naïve
It took a lot of cynicism for me to believe
Only when I chose to stay was I ready to leave
Only when I lost my shirt did I roll up my sleeves

When I lost it all, I learned what I do not need
Only when I failed did I learn how to succeed
When I won outright, I learned when it’s right to concede
Only when my scars faded did I truly start to bleed

When I closed my eyes, I saw the wood behind the trees
When I went outside, I felt the freshness of the breeze
When I opened up my mind, I knew the Truth that always frees
When the Moon shone bright, I woke up to the Day I had to seize
