Give me the strength to go inside
Give me the strength to not run and hide

I need to face what is flawed in me
I need to know so I can truly see

Constantly questioning, faith so easily lost
Burdened by apathy, lethargic, a stone collecting moss

Life once flowed through my veins
But I was lulled into the slumber of a stifling pain

The hole I fell into nearly became my tomb
But I feel I am bursting out anew, like a baby from the womb

However I still feel so fractured, so flawed, so hurt
I fight now though, taking a stand, trying to stay alert

I take as my inspiration the phoenix, reborn from a fiery death
I imagine myself the hero, chasing my dreams with every waking breath

Give me the strength to love and to grow
Give me the strength to question and to know

It hurts and that will not go away
Give me the strength to work through it; give me the courage to stay
