I've Been... 

I've been down & out, 
Round & round.
This time I've found
it's okay to drown.
I've been to hell,
Then bounced right back.
I've lived in shells,
but they've all cracked.
I've hit rock bottom,
And scratched the surface, 
Never know what you'll find
While searching for purpose
The falls are still worth it
It took a while to learn this
The key is, you take the time
To learn what your worth is.
It's all cause for discernment, 
No downfall is permanent.
I've been there,
I've done that.
Trust me,
I know this.
