Eye of the Storm

Life has been hard, it could be a lot harder
If you take a hard stop, you can't get any farther.
If you take a big step and have a little bit of trust
You can learn to find the sparkle hiding underneath the rust.
You can brush up the spindles, and make the surface shine
and can knock off the dust that builds up in your mind.
Look, the weather isn't stopping so go ahead and weatherize
whether you're facing freezing rain or suffering scorching summer skies
It's not wise to be surprised about normal wear and tear
your damage is just a document, proving you were there.
