Every now and then, and then and again,
We must face the unkind but obvious reality,
That sometimes we have to lose in order to win.
It isn’t a pretty thought, in fact it is a tough pill to swallow,
Therefore, inside one’s being it has began to wallow,
In self pity as the song plays, “Woe It’s Me!”
As the mind agrees, “Oh Yes It’s Me!”
And the heart pleads, “Please Set Me Free!”
But the body says, “Just Let Me Be!”
Oh yes, sometimes we must lose to win,
You have to let go of some things to get to the end,
Of the me, myself and I and the “I’m doing this my way,”
To ultimately find out the way that has already been paved.
Paved before we were even created by our Heavenly Father.
