Just before laying down to sleep every night
I feel my legs who carried me through this fight
I lost my focus, it is equal to loosing my sight
Why does my chest inhale breath so tight?
A warning sign that everything won't be alright
For big dreams are still within in search of its light
Tomorrow's new reach is bound for an unknown height
How does a blind man succeed without sight?
Exorcise his fears to leave on the next AM flight
For self-discipline is the burden I can't get right
As I slept, I dreamed my legs gave up before midnight
Anyone please, calm my nerves and say I'll be aiight!
