    yours alone

    ~there's such a sense of strength in fighting your toughest battles alone, in going through the lowest of your lows -alone. there's immense pain and that is what makes you strong~

    did you fight with hope on your mind
    or did you drag through
    despite the dying light?
    knowing you're speeding towards a dead end
    but falling apart isn't an option;
    did you have a shoulder to lean on
    when your knees gave way
    and you couldn't go on?
    did you fight with hope on your mind?

    was there love
    when you needed it the most?
    where was the sun
    when you were scared of the ghosts?
    was there a friend,
    was there a hand to hold
    or did you come down crashing all the way
    all alone?
    did you stay up nights,
    did your cries turn to roars?
    how wounded were you
    when you decided to soar-
    high,
    towards the blue sky?
    you're coming alive now.
    you were always meant to.

    did you go on
    when they shut you out?
    did you want to set yourself apart from the crowd?
    did the pain make you want to scream out loud
    -when you couldn't?

    did you fight with hope on your mind?
    or did you drag through
    despite the dying light?
    take a deep breath,
    you made it out alive.
    show me that big smile,
    your soul's beaming;
    your next battle will again be yours
    and yours alone to fight-
    so kick it in the balls
    it ain't fight or flight;
    it's fright and fight
    and then the striking sight
    of a victory.
