Oops, sorry.
Ignore the dirt in my nails. 
I’ve spent the last ten years digging myself out of my own grave.  

Didn’t realize it would take me that long. 
Knew there was a load of dirt on top of me
                                                                           just not that much.  

Used my hands, but had to swallow some of it as well.
Didn’t go down very easy, choked me up a bit.
Brought tears to my eyes and a heaviness to my heart.  

But I kept digging.  

Sometimes you just have to do that.
                                                                           Keep digging
                                                                           Even though you’re
                                                                           Choked up and your
                                                                           Nails are dirty.
