Oh how different a person I am now to that of which I was a year ago.
Down trodden by the world
Yet still I soldier on,
Determine not to be destroyed,
Determine to keep my head held high.
Yet a different me.
For I am stronger than I was yesterday
Yet weaker than I’ll be tomorrow.
For I have lived to see another day and to fight another battle yet as the hours pass me by
I question what I’m fighting for.
Do I fight to fight again
If so then why go on?
For faith in hope
But hope of what I ask?
I find less light with in each day
And soon there will be none,
So why do I fight if from it nothing comes.
In times of want and worry
What keeps me standing strong?
What holds me still unwavering?
Why do I continue on?
I trust that there are answers,
Undiscovered still perhaps,
Answers to these questions of which we are unsure.
I trust that there will come hope
I hope there will come faith
And I have faith that these questions
Unanswered as they are
Have reason for their being
Give reason to carry on.
So I’ll live another day
Give it my all and everything
I’ll fight a fight that’s worth the time
And come this time again next year
How much I will have changed
For staying still is not to live
And change is part of life.
