Today Is the First Day

Today is the first day
Another fresh start
Today is the first day
Realize who you are
Don’t be discouraged
Do not despair
Today is the first day
Forget your past errs
There will be times you want to quit
There will be days you just want to sit
You gotta rise up and do what you can
Get on your feet, speak out, take a stand
There will be times when you’ll be alone
Times when a friend cannot be found
That’s when you reach deep within yourself
And find a way….
Today is the first day
Start life anew
Today is the first day
It begins and ends with you
Take charge, gain perspective
Define who you are
Don’t set limits or settle
Reach high and reach far
Today is your first day.
