It's Up to Me

It's Up to Me

Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh


I get discouraged now and then
When there are clouds of gray,
Until I think about the things
that happened yesterday.
I do not mean the day before
Or those of months ago,
But all the yesterdays in which
I had the chance to grow.
I think of opportunities
That I allowed to die,
And those I took advantage of
Before they passed me by.
And I remember that the past 
Presented quite a plight,
But somehow I endured it and 
The future seemed all right.
And I remind myself that I
Am capable and free,
And my success and happiness
Are really up to me.
