You start a war on your hands and knees
Crying and begging for help shouting PLEASE!
There were days were I was tired and sore
And even more days I could do nothing but crawl on the floor.
But that floor was my lonely highway of healing
Not knowing if I would live through the work because it was so grueling
I was getting some much needed schooling
But hope and determination powered me forward
And the daily work sometimes leaving me scarred
This time I was still leading a team you see
Because the athlete would activate the wolf in me
I was changing into something I would need
But this time it would be the real and authentic me
Coach was guiding me to a beautiful life
Working hard once again to be a mom and a wife
This time I look in the mirror I don’t see tears
For the first time in many years
There are no screams or cries
Because this time I see freedom in my eyes.
