I am a work in progress
and progress is slow
but I made a promise to myself
to be still and know

it’s not about how much you accomplish

’cause, at the end of the day,
all we accomplish fades away –
even Michael Jordan’s name
will be forgotten

it’s not about racing to conquer every challenge
it’s simply a matter of striking my perfect balance
if I wander too far in any direction, I’ll be lost
that’s the cost of moving too fast

so I progress slowly, even though I get passed
’cause I’ll never move past my challenges
if I crash
and repeat my mistakes as I languish in relapse

so I made a promise to myself
to be still and know
because I am a work in progress
and progress is slow
