It takes most of my energy just to get out of bed
and to fight being a prisoner in my own head
Too often seeing another sunrise I dread
the passion for life, that old fire breathing dragon inside of me is almost dead
I am playing the back nine
and my best shots are barely on-line
But, my middle name is perseverance
and to my "code" there is still an adherence
My calling is to tell a tale well
and clearly like a call on a satellite "cell"
So, I exist and evil I try to resist
in hopes that St. Peter will have me on his list
