We Gotta Try

kudzyIt’s hard to keep trying sometimes. There are days when we want to curl up in the fetal position and suck our thumbs. And, that isn’t a bad idea when we really need it. 

What would be tragic is if we didn’t get up and take some steps, even if they are baby steps to move us inch by inch toward the juicy things life has to offer. It takes courage and faith and just plain grit to override fear and overwhelm, self-doubt and the blaring media that, if we aren’t careful, will choke us like kudzu vines. Kudzu? Google it!

This morning, singer and songwriter Michael McDonald was my inspiration…maybe you need the music to help you get out of your own way today. Here it is…

Maybe it’s true what they say about it

Maybe we can’t make the ends meet

Maybe we’ll all have to do without it

Maybe this world’s just incomplete

Still we all look for the truth in our lives
Searching from different sides
So hard living in a desperate world
But we all do the best that we can

Some people see a change, some will remain the same
But all of them live their lives under the gun
Some see the road as clear, some say the end is here
They say it’s a hopeless fight, well I say I gotta try

Maybe there’s too much to think about it
Maybe there ain’t nothin’ left to say
But if our time’s really runnin’ out
Then this is no time to run away

‘Cause we’re destined to look for the truth in this life
Blinded by tearful eyes
If it’s no use tryin’ in a desperate world
Then tell me why was I born

Some people see a change, some will remain the same
But all of them live their lives under the gun
Some see the road as clear, some say the end is here
They say it’s a hopeless fight, but I say I gotta try

Lonely living too lonely, is it too late?
To turn it all around

Some people see a change, some will remain the same
But all of them live their lives under the gun
Some see the road as clear, some say the end is here
They say it’s a hopeless fight, but I say I gotta try

Someone’s tryin’, someone’s cryin’ out
While we live under the gun
Someone’s livin’, someone’s givin’ up
