Fighting To Find The Love Inside Me

Once I longed my soul to sleep
to escape the demons locked inside
round and 'round my mind they'd creep
'til there was no place left to hide.

One by one, they took their bite
out of all I held so dear
Then one day I learned to fight
Stand up, God said, and PERSEVERE!

I grabbed the tools,
so desperate I was, beyond measure
I fought and clawed and vanquished those fools
Now life, though short, has pleasure.

Sunshine now warms my day's blue sky
and fills my heart with love
I feel as in the air I fly
Gently, into heavens above.
