I Rise

I was down and out  
Languishing in the black bowels of Hell
Writhing in agony  
Mental anguish debilitating me

But now I'm back
And I rise
Im fighting,
Im on the attack

Loneliness won't defeat me
I'll grab life by the scruff
And get what's mine
I'll defend my corner 

Sick of being walked over
Trodden on
I will prevail
Life wont win

Won't be tossed about
By others actions and my emotions
Im taking back my power
I'm not giving in

Taking back the power is the key to winning!

Won't be tossed about
By others actions and my emotions
Im taking back my power
I'm not giving in

Love it!!!
