One More Day
If I can make it through one more day, I can make it through anything
Just gotta put my feet on the ground, keep walking the walk til the sun goes down
For just one more day and I know that I got this
Yeah I’mma tell the world that I got this
Yeah, yeah, yeah, just one more day
Today’s the day they gonna like me (not likely)
They always trying to fight me
And my psyche might be mighty but they strike me with icees and steal my Nikes
You blame me for hating the hazing, that’s crazy that fearing for my safety makes me a baby
They beat me in the stall then post pictures on my wall
Can you tell me y’all, how is this not against the law?
Teachers call me a liar, sitting behind their blinders
No advocates or fighters in my corner, only silence
I’ve never felt kindness, they’re primed like a pride of lions
But through this mindless violence I find I’m a survivor
This moment here is timeless because of what’s inside us
I’m fully learning bullies are spineless (hey, it’s science)
They might be giants, but they ain’t the boss of me
And they ain’t causing me one more day of atrocity
Once again back in school, my best friend Jim sometimes acts a fool
Our classmates stare at him because he dates a Native American
Like, “Oh it’s so embarrassing.” Haha!
They surrounded Jim, doused him in paintballs at his house again
How come when he’s down the outcome is his crowd of friends get fake like counterfeits? Ah!
So he pounds his chest, screams to relieve all the amount of stress
He probably says he’s ‘bout to wow his friends cause Jim has been reborn and found again, ah!
So the moral is, you should listen close to what the chorus says
One day at a time pay no mind to a bully and be ready to go live your life fully!
