Head Held High

Everyday that I wake, I set the life straight
Let my God know that everyday he is great
He gave me another chance, to make the life grand
Even though I struggle, he will extend his holy hand
And let me know that everyday I stay on grind
He will deal with my heart, soul, and mind
So I can let the people know each and every day
I live for him and no one else, regardless if I say
Or do many things, that are not Christ-like
My struggle is mainly me trying to do right
Because perfection is his and his alone
Everyday I walk with him, I stand strong

I got my head held high
Till the day I die
Ask for forgiveness every time I lie
And for every mistake I make in my life
I know it’s a struggle, I’ll never give up the fight

Where the confidence come from, why do you set it out?
Why when people are silent, you always run your mouth?
Is it because you have no fear or just overconfident?
Is it because you believe people won’t listen to your comment?
I speak because at a time where I wasn’t spoken to
People began to lie and make false truths
About who I was, who I am and who I be
Regardless if I proved them wrong for the world to see
Every time I stepped up, bullies put me down
So I walked around this world with a bitter, mean frown
And I changed it to a smile and lifted up my head
It was like I was born anew, I rose from the dead

I got my head held high
Till the day I die
Ask for forgiveness every time I lie
And for every mistake I make in my life
I know it’s a struggle, I’ll never give up the fight

I gained so many friends, even those I didn’t know
Spoke to me with such kindness, I’ll never let this go
I never take it for granted, I know how it feels
When you walk around the world with a harsh, cold chill
You want to put an end to it all, suicide is not the answer
It’s a plague of the mind and soul, it’s even worse than cancer
How is it worse than cancer? At least with it, you can fight.
But with suicide, trust me, you just give up the fight

I got my head held high
Till the day I die
Ask for forgiveness every time I lie
And for every mistake I make in my life
I know it’s a struggle, I’ll never give up the fight

For those of you who struggle keeping your head to the clouds, trust me I know it’s hard. When so much is on your shoulders, so much is on your mind, you just want to give up. Trust me, God didn’t put you here to give up. Do not submit to depression and sadness. Look to God. He is the real answer to the madness.
