Today I rise
A former self in disguise
I must own my mistakes and move on
From these ashes I create a new song
I must find the strength from within
From these ashes I must forge a new path to begin
The past is gone
Am I to relive it?
Or am I to go on?
The truth to finding our way
Let go of what’s gone
Begin again, begin a new day
Attachment is misery
Buddhist and Taoist will agree
As in the Western world
The apple doesn’t fall
Too far from the tree
How sick must I be
If I stumble and I fall?
Never to get up
And continue to crawl?
Forgive us of our folly
Forgive us of this pain
If you want to forgive yourself
Dust off your ashes and begin again
