The courage i have keeps me alive
Sometimes life seems dull, a perculiar dark brownish,
Colour of a kalamata olive
From time to time i may feel lost and alone,
Bonnie without clide
I fight evil silently, i feel like a soldier inside.
Everyday i live to see the next day,
My achievements make me want to scream and say hooray
The fight never stops; the struggle is my daily bread
Knocked on some doors, but fear seems to be a step ahead of me
The devil may be all set up and ready to demolish me
But as long as i’m alive, i shall conquer and prosper.
