Shadows of Victory

Out of the night that covers me,
In the shadows of self unseen,
Only the spark can ignite me.
As I thank the Higher Power that be,
For the courage to be a shining light.

For even when in my darkest moments of circumstances,
I will not surrender nor show defeat.

My hand is Sandy, bug my soul is grateful.
For beyond this world of suffering and struggling looms the shadows of victory.

And yet, the difficulties of the years to come shall find me unafraid and intended.
For it does not matter how straight the gates of failure may be,
Nor how narrow the the chances of success.
I am the master of my fate,
You are the captain of your soul,
And above all, we are the designers of our destiny in the beyond the shadows of victory.
