Cherish

Emma Sidney c.2013 All rights reserved

If our natural state is joy, then why do I work so hard
Trying to stop this cross from breaking my shoulders
I remind myself daily that I’m strong and I’m good
Got to find my balance be the person that I should

I’m all grown up, I can move on
I don’t need to be bound by what has gone wrong
I’m all grown up now movin on
Find the path in my life has taken way too long

Moving round from place to place and peep to peep ain’t great
But surely I ain’t the first child to deal with that mistake
Yes I had no mama sayin she loved me daily
But it is time I realized that I don’t have to fail

I’m all grown up, I can move on
I don’t need to be bound by what has gone wrong
I’m all grown up now movin on
Finding my path in my life has taken way too long

Stopped trusting that grown up, made me black and blue outside
Tiny little child was beaten scared and still defied
Even then at 7 I knew being me was important
I can’t help but wish that someone else had thought so too

But I’m all grown up, got kids of my own
I can give them all the love that mamas always do
I’m all grown up now movin on
I got all the love I need inside and I be strong

So I cherish the children
Dissipate my own past when I had all that wrong
It’s invaluable that childhood
The love and care you give them will last them all life long

I’m all grown up, I can move on
Just accept it wasn’t me who did all that wrong
I’m all grown up now movin on
Found my path for good now it’s all in this song

Cherishing my children I’m moving on
Put to rest the cross now, my love goes on and on

Cherishing my children I’m moving on
Put to rest the cross now, my love goes on and on
