I created the distance to find my balance.
Me against the drug—
I knew I couldn’t challenge.
Balancing hate and love, Lord knows I couldn’t manage.
I kept my heart open as the doors closed.
I had options, so I chose.
I decided dysfunction could no longer park.
I chose my sanity.
I chose my heart.
I accepted their challenges weren’t mine.
I learned to practice compassion, and respect time.
I learned to trust myself and always pray.
I accepted greatness would take me away.
That they would tell me I changed, I’m actin a way.
Now I’m performing with my family section empty.
I see it but it hasn’t hit me.
