You can feel my heart
Like the roar of an ocean
Though I've been brought down
I'll still coming round
I know I'm not done yet.

I kept running into a wall
One built on the end of my dreams
Like I couldn't win it seems
Like I had no chance at all

Oh I may just tire
But I know that's not true
Everyday given is new
I can set my soul on fire

You can feel my heart
Like the roar of an ocean
Though I've been brought down
I'm still coming round
I know I'm not done yet.

Life can be a burden
That will test your will
Every road a hard one
where the blues instills
You may hurt you may cry
What comes in a new day
Could change everything
Take the tears from your eyes

I'll put my eyes to the sky
Where my thoughts can fly
Like an eagle way up high
And know I'm not done yet.

Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.

Not Done Yet
I'm having this very conversation with my Mom - the very one I had with nyself a few years back. The Doctors don't have the authority to declare us 'done' we have that authority. No matter the circumstance I believe a new day can change everything - for me it is an article of 'faith' for a person that has no faith it is a matter of 'confidence'. Either way never give up!
