Life is Made to Conquer, Not to be Given Lightly


Light is not so easily found

Even harder when you aren't looking

I know it is easier to give into the dark

But when that string of light is found

Hope starts to restore


I am guilty of being guilty

Holding every little thing above my head

But hope is not found in the past

So forward is where I must look

And hold those who support me close


At times I will bleed 

I will feel broke beyond repair

But then and only then the fight begins

To prove all wrong

That life exist beyond the dark

And broken can be fixed


Broken may not be easily fixed 

But when has easy been enjoyable?

Do you get satisfaction in only making sound

Or when you conquer a mountain no one has?


When you feel close to death

And all hope is lost fight

For I will fight beyond this 

And break my cycle

Of running circles in the dark


I am tired of being tired

Angry that I am always angry

Sad that I am always depressed

But I do nothing I no ground to stand on

And reason to move forward

So I say I will fight for what feels impossible

To have another sunny day

To move mountains when I feel I can only move hills


This life needs to be taken

And not begged for

Life is not made to given 

But taken

And held high on top of the highest mountain


When you have the high ground

No one will take your place

That is when you stop being a number 

And you gain worth in yourself 

And what you have
