The Journey A Survivor Takes Is A Choice The Healing...Takes Courage!

 

Cards You’re Dealt

I miss the passion-I miss the fire
I miss the laughter-the joy of my desire
I miss my sister-my best friend ’till the end
I wouldn’t be who I am today-she taught me to love again

but… you don’t choose the cards you’re dealt-you play them

Life’s a game-nobody said it’s fair
you don’t get-to opt out of the heartache
the anguish that you hide-you shed a tear

but… you don’t choose the cards you’re dealt-you play them
you don’t choose the cards you’re dealt-you play them

The deck was stacked against me-now it’s time to make my move
I don’t like it.. I don’t want it-it was dealt me
this game was never easy- I had everything to lose
but I held on with my last breath-to protect it

but… you don’t choose the cards you’re dealt you play them

the struggle never ending-laid my heart out on the line
checked my spirit at the door- I didn’t need it
I had to go to battle- though I knew I’d be destroyed
I chose to fight-I knew I’d come back bleedin’

but… you don’t choose the cards you’re dealt- you play them

lost the battle-not the war
pickin’ up-the broken pieces
as I walk-into my life
with the love-anger releases

break the chains-that bind me here
as my heart-is breaking open
tears that fall-release my fear
mend my heart-that once was broken

Though the cards-were dealt against me
I don’t have to -take the fall
I can choose-to rise above it
guess who’s the winner-after all
