One Day at a Time

Updated on September 27, 2017

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

One day at a time,

One foot in front of the other,

I must be patient with myself,

Things will work out,

I keep my head up to the sky,

Negativity must not creep in,

I must do this,

One day at a time,

One day at a time,

I inhale then I exhale,

Breath by breath,

Steadfast I must be,

For the future can be uncertain,

Inside myself I must look,

I harden my resolve,

One day at a time,

One day at a time,

Control what I can,

Accept what I cannot,

See with clear eyes,

I take another step forward,

I will stumble, even fall,

I will pick myself up,

One day at a time...
