All Will Be Well

The new day dawns,
And I am practicing my purpose once again.
It is fresh and it is fruitful if I win but if I lose,
Oooooo I don’t know.
I will be tired but I will turn and I will go,
Only guessing til I get there then I’ll know,
Oh oh oh I will know.

The winter’s cold,
But the snow still lightly settles on the trees.
And a mess is still a moment I can seize until I know,
That all will be well.
Even though sometimes this is hard to tell,
And the fight is just as frustrating as hell
All will be well.


Keep it up and don’t give up
And chase your dreams and you will find
All in time.

All the children walking home past the factories
Could see the light that’s shining in my window as I write this song to you.
All the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates
Illuminating what I know is true,
All will be well.
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself,
All will be well.
You can ask me how but only time will tell.

All will be well.
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself,
All will be well.
You can ask me how but only time will tell.
You can ask me how but only time will tell.
-Gabe Dixon Band

Despite the optimistic tone of this song (when I'm feeling down and out, I usually want a song that will just let me stay there for a bit), it really struck me today. The message I kept getting was something like this:

Life is up in the air. You don't know which way is up or down. Life is lonely, cold and frustrating. But -but!- it is still life. Despite the letdowns and the struggles, I am still alive, I am still participating in this mess and, as he said, "a mess is still a moment I can seize". Here's hoping as I grasp blindly for the opportunity within all my mess.
