Struggling constantly

Through this relentless fight

This battle won't kill me

I will climb past this height

 

I'm scared of the outcome

I fight to overcome it

My heart beats like a drum

To survive I play it

 

Everyday is a gift

I'm grateful but want more

My spirit tries to lift

Yet it's pushed to the floor

 

I will never give up

Though some days I may break

Fragile as a glass cup

I fight for my kids' sake

 

This war within me's grave

I struggle with the pain

I'm trying just to save

Myself and keep me sane
