Rock Stars - Poem by sara messina

(this is one of my first song i wrote and i hope it lifts your spirits and lets you know everything will be okay, and god loves you no matter what)

She moves to L.A, wants to be sombody
three and a half years later shes still not anbody
she still hoping for a break while she waiting tables
realizing some dreams are fables
frear grows when she knows that shes out of control
throwing up in the bathroom, hoping noby knows
and she fears shes a failure she forgets that god loves her

you tried and you failed hold you head up high
you climbed and you fell hold your head up high
hold your head up hold your head up high
cuz if its not okay to to fall sometimes its not okay to be
if they dont want us its okay honest
it doesnt have to bring me down
let them say we're not big rockstars
its not what we're about
we dont have to be rockstars!

They said hed never make it maybe their right
his parents never believed that his dreams could take flight
all he ever wanted was for them to be proud of him
it was the whole world to him
he needed to win
he gave his everything but sometimes its not enough
he thinks hes a failure now hes not worth being loved
he forgets he had the courage to climb up sp high, the courage to climb up so high, the courage to fly

cuz if we never make it ever then its going to be okay with me
cuz if its not okay to fall sometimes its not okay to be
if they dont want us its okay honest
it doesnt have to bring me down
let them say we're not big rockstars
its not what we're about
we dont have to be rockstars...
we dont have to be rockstars....!

its not about success life is not a test
you dont pass or fail you just do your best
to see the view from the wings of courage
to see the view from the wings of courage
to push on thru when your discouraged
its all about the try.
all about the ride
learning how you were meant to touch the sky
failures are flyers who touch down
only they know what its like to leave the ground

you tried and you failed hold your head up high
you climbed and you failed hold you head up high
you tried and failed hold your head up high
hold your head up hold your head up high
cuz if we never make it ever then
its gonna be okay with me
cuz if its not okay to fall sometimes its not okay to be
if they dont want us its okay honest
it doesnt have to bring me down
let them say we; re not big rockstars
its not what we're about
we dont have to be rockstars...
we dont have to be rockstar...!
