The Fight

Keeping the faith; what does that mean;
Toughin it out; trying to do the right thing.
How I wish I knew how to deal; problems are compounding; I don't know what is real.
Issues upon issues in everyone's life, so little time and so much strife.
I wake in the morning with tears in my eyes, because you can't change people and you can't 
change life.
I'm screaming and fighting trying to get out, but then I realize there's no way out.
Life is what you make of it; (is that what they say;)where there full of it, because life's a fight

    This is so true indeed, life is an everyday battle, up and down like a roller coaster except you never know when you are getting off. I get discouraged a lot at times because of situations I can't change but what has helped me is my mom talking to me and counseling me and the help of the Lord Jesus Christ, without him I would not have been able to get through anything. I hope that you pray and grow nearer to him, He will guide your days and turn your bad days into good ones. God Bless * Tyesha

    You are so right. We are living in perilous times and we do have to fight- that good fight of faith. The enemy is who we need to be fighting. The strongholds are many but God is all powerful. Leave it at his feet. Continue to share. I am reading.
