Some where in darkness,
I decided to no longer live in shadow.
When the struggle presented itself.
I wondered if I’d see a tomorrow. Just recognizing that nothing is free
Not even the life we live is ours
It’s always been borrowed.

So I said to myself I refuse to shatter.
Day in and day out things were sadder.
That was then, today those
Things don’t matter.

Many times I despaired needlessly
In plain sight I suffered secretly.
If it doesn’t kill you only stronger it makes you.
When you find you find yourself
Going through changes.
Remain you and never forget
To Stay True.
