Loser loser loser you,
If this is what they say to you,
That you can’t do it you are through,
There is nothing more that you can do.
Listen with your ear turned in,
Accept those words and share a grin,
Turn to them and say this day,
That your problems are in dismay.
For you don’t turn and look around,
You don’t make others bear a frown.
You’re the one who raises hope,
From the ugly you can cope.
For you will wake up everyday,
Work through the pain and always say,
A problem is a thing to do,
The struggle is what’s meant for you.
For from these losses which we bear,
Come ways to win in future’s air.
What is today represents the past,
And even if you’ve come in last,
Five years from now so much will change,
Will go to show the path you take.
Don’t get frightened, don’t be scared,
Don’t deny that life’s not fair.
Just go on to move ahead,
Accept your place and see who cares.
For in the future you will win,
From here the future don’t look so grim.
It looks to me like there’s an end,
It seems to me the pain runs thin,
When you begin to think in ways,
To turn your problems into change.
Reach forth higher and reach forth proud,
Let your heart beat oh-so-loud,
You’re not an idiot, not a fluke,
You’re the one who thought to do,
The things of which will dig you out,
The acts of growth like you’re devout.
You got away and passed the pain,
‘Cause you set out to change your ways.
Not from fear or worry or doubt,
But from the belief that future’s cloud,
Won’t look so grey and rainy wet,
It won’t be hazy or make you upset,
But looks to me from this horizon,
There’s no more clouds where your blue sky ends.
