Offense! (Song) - Poem by annie tuck

Count 1. It's good to improve
Count 2. It's good to rest
Count 3. It's good to think
It's good to be able to progress at my own pace.

Left behind in the river of time
you must not forget your impatient feelings
'This reckless defiance is after all, useless' they say
and abandon Peace-at-All-Cost

OFFENSE! it's painful, by the way, saying it.
OFFENSE! I face the direction I aim myself at.

Be a great wall that towers over all
Don't be afraid of being confused or having no answers in life
KEEP MY PACE

Count 1. It's good to improve
Count 2. It's good to rest
Count 3. It's good to think
It's good to be able to progress at my own pace.

To study the true reason
We understand our freedom we're parting with
Even calling out 'Coward' you can convey a small amount of courage

OFFENSE! Giving me the feeling of my surroundings without saying it.
OFFENSE! Extracting reserves of strength, Come on! Let's go towards it.

The sky's the limit for your future, even if you can't reach it now
One of these days, I'll reach out with both hands and grip it.

OFFENSE! If at all possible try vocalizing it loudly.
OFFENSE! I face the direction I aim myself at.

Be a great wall that towers over all don't be afraid
If it doesn't come true, don't run away, there are no subsitutes
The bell is beginning to sound, NOW is the time to stand up.
Don't be confused about not having the answers in this life.
KEEP MY PACE.

Count 1. It's good to improve
Count 2. It's good to rest
Count 3. It's good to think
It's good to be able to progress at my own pace.

    Improve, rest, and think - yes, good advice indeed. These are the some of your best lyrics. A more advisory, mentor-like message in the song. Very nice. Again, if you check some of the grammar/spelling for presentation, I believe this will stand out amongst your works.
