Potency and Strength - Part 1

We shall not fall into darkness, even in dark times. 
We ought to be strong enough to face our demons. 
No one can fight our battles. 
No one can itch your skin, no one can be you. 
You should find what strength you've got
and stand up with honor, 
Life is too short for second chances, life is not fair, 
life is cruel... 
You need to find yourself to be what you want to be.
To become a better person, to become good.

    I did enjoy this, but feel it needs a killer last line, something else..mmm like- "good at facing life". I dunno maybe you could expand the poem..still enjoyed it though. Cheers.
