I Have Earned the Right

Regina Puckett


Love is hard and life is so complicated

Sometimes I feel helpless and frustrated

But still, I wake up every single day and live

Because this is the only thing I have left to give

Some things are so worth fighting for, so I do

When my last day comes, I want to be through

I don’t want regrets tapping me on the shoulder

I have earned the right to smile at getting older
