I am a warrior....
Not because I've seen combat, or fought against an enemy of our country...
Every day I fight,
I fight to get out of bed,
I fight to make myself take pills I know I need.
I fight with that voice in my head.
'Just one slip it'll all go away.
You know you want to. Give in.'
No it won't and yes I do,
But I'm stronger than this, I always have been!
'Stop fighting, you've been strong enough.
Let this take your pain away.'
No! All you do is lie, all you do is hide.
I won't run anymore, I'll stand and face this pain!!
I refuse to hide this anymore, I will not back down without a fight!
I am here to make my stand,
I will scream with all my might!
You may have been who I was,
But not who I will be!
I am stronger than this, than you,
And everyone will see!
Yes I have scars, and they are from a battle.
A battle with my pain, my demons.
They are also something more,
They are my drive, they are my reasons.
I am a warrior.
I am strong.
I will make a difference, a little at a time,
