Survival



Survival

My life has been a neverending uphill battle
My travels have taken me far and wide
Its bends and dips drags me thru mud.
Many a night i have shivered and cried

A survivalist that meets every demand
I stumble through life completely aware
Shying away from people out to do me harm
Detouring through pitfalls that are everywhere

I placed a heavy shield around myself
Try hard to keep my heart intact
Its been broken so many times before
When it happens it hard to mend it back

I stand up straight with head held high
Forgiving those who blatantly hurt me
I put one foot in front of the other
Hoping to find lasting love to set me free

I stagger by dens of devilry and demise
Fighting to keep on a righteous path
Ive lead the life of active addiction
But try to stray from the devils wrath

I've managed to pick myself up time and again
lve ran in fear from men under dark skies
Survived the cold and rain with no covers
Let no one hear my anguished cries


Regsrdless of what is thrown at me
I would never try to take my own life
It goes against the grain of my self worth
To give up or give in no matter the strife

Lately my will to survive had been tested
My chances of love have been far and slim
Vigilantly I stand on precipe of light and dark
Forcing myself to move forward without him

I'd Rather Be Hated For Who I Am, Than Loved For Who I Am Not.
