Name of Song: To hell with them

Multiple rejections, spanning over time,
Leaving scars with different lengths and memories entwined.
Most people harden up, ’cause that’s what these scars do,
They leave their mark deep down inside, tho’ we’re so sublime.

You may sometimes decide to stop punishing yourself,
It’s often the only sane thing left to do,
But trying to figure out why your mind let you go,
In the end usually not worth the show.

Chorus
Unconscionable memories waiting to punch,
Ancient deeds that forget not what was done,
So someone doesn’t like your style of living,
Make your mark and slide into your own freedom.

Hours and hours can be spent on think,
Quietly wondering did I do right or wrong,
Better to focus on just how great you are,
Allow the many silent wonderings to move along.

You can think all you like about rejection,
It’s so easy to be a victim when you get dumped,
Just because someone else can’t confront who you are,
Doesn’t mean you should now deny yourself.

Chorus
Unconscionable memories waiting to punch,
Ancient deeds that forget not what was done,
So someone doesn’t like your style of living,
Make your mark and slide into your own freedom.
______

Stalwart, strong but always loving,
Learn to understand, predict what others do,
Just because your past can push you around,
Is no real reason to let it start a bloody coup.

There is a game of look what you did to me,
Much agreement, so many gave up trying.
Sometimes you just have to jump up and out of it,
And tell yourself “Ahhh…. to hell with all this sighing.

Chorus
Unconscionable memories waiting to punch,
Ancient deeds that forget not what was done,
So someone doesn’t like your style of living,
Make your mark and slide into your own freedom.
