It's Up To Me
I get discouraged now and then 
When there are clouds of gray,
Until I think about the things That
happened yesterday.

I do not mean the day before Or those of months ago, 
But all the yesterdays in which I had the chance to grow.  
I think of opportunities That I allowed to die, And those I
took advantage of Before they passed me by.

And I remember that the past Presented quite a plight. 
But somehow I endured it and The future seemed all right.  

And I remind myself that I Am capable and free.  And my
success and happiness Are really up to me -James J. Metcalfe
