Because I am a fighter

Just give up and fold

I will never take a chance to

Aspire what I desire

To become someone and

My goal in this life is

Leaning back and watching things happen

I could never make a difference just by

Standing up and raising my voice

I fight all my battles

That’s no way to win

Giving in and playing dead

Is the way to go

Facing life’s battles

Is no option for me

Looking the other way and pretending

Not my concern

Never will I say, it’s

My duty to help

Because some problems are hard to solve, I can’t ignore

Though I got up eight

I fell down seven times

It’s time to acknowlege

A silent observer

That’s who I am and always will be, not

Someone who speaks his mind and stands up for himself and others,

A fighter

(Now read from bottom to top)

    I’m not much for reblogging old posts of mine, because the things I post are the things I’m feeling in this moment, things that need to get out. This old post however, is exactly what I’m feeling right now, this post is something I needed to remind myself of.
    I needed to remind myself, that I’m a fighter and no matter what life throws my way, I won’t ever let anything bring me down. I will stand tall and keep on shining as brightly as possible to defeat this sinister darkness lingering in each corner, patiently waiting for us to let our guard down.
    Yes, I’m a fighter! Are you with me?
