Fight for tomorrow

I see it some times today
looking back on yesterday
When I young
and didn't know better

You always said to me
Remember what you're fighting for
Don't let go there is always
always a fight for tomorrow

I didn't understand these words
When I came home one day
From a fight over nothing
That left me battered and bruised

When my morals were questioned
When I had to make my way through life
When my life had no meaning
When all I did was pick a fight

you said...

You always said to me
remember what you're fighting for
Don't let go, there is always
Always a fight for tomorrow

These weren't pretty words
I never realised how true they were
Until a look up and saw hurt in your eyes
I saw the life you fought for

You always said to me
Remember what you're fighting for
Don't let it go, there is always
Always a fight for tomorrow

    Sage advice you were offered, Crystal. Sometimes we end up hurting the wrong people when we choose the wrong battles. If this is for the contest, I wish you success. Beautifully penned. Happy New Year, Carolyn

    You don't pay hid sometimes to a golden thought but we do remember as we get matured and face the trials and tribulations of life, Crystal. Happy New Year
