Paranoia, loss, defeat - they consume me,
my deepest fears lay heavily on my chest.
Terrors that pollute my mind never cease,
I seek comfort, but I can never truly rest.
Shadows at night whisper a dreadful tale,
My past taunts me - I revisit that hell.
I am strong, but inside I am bleeding,
Desperate for hope - my heart is pleading.
I seek the sun - but there are only violent rains.
I seek grace - but there are only profound pains.
I seek myself - but only a shattered soul remains.
Then I decide to pick up the pieces to my soul.
I remember who I am.
I am a man. I am a champion. I am a warrior.
I will brandish my sword and bare my shield.
And this is why to my pain and darkness..
I will never yield.
+ Hit that HEART!
