    i have felt the presence of one's heel
    in the vicinity of my head
    with much regret

    I WALKED AWAY

    as the pressures of life
    began to grow
    my knees would sometimes buckle
    ...couldn't take it no more

    i stressed and strained
    ...strained and stressed
    forced to toil on
    without rest

    BUT I WAS BLESSED

    i have been tormented and abused
    'til i was fully confused
    even though i've been misused

    I STAND

    i've been kicked 'til i was down
    then kicked some more
    coz i went down

    ***** THEM.

    i was stepped on like i was dirt
    though my body was torn
    and my heart hurt
    but
    i stood up
    and moved on

    WALK WITH ME.
