Keep The Faith, Have Hope, Pursue Truth

Here begins a new life
void of trouble and strife
a new beginning, reborn
happy, no longer forlorn

What was, is the past
what will yet be, vast
hopes and dreams survive
what matters is you're alive

There is plan and purpose
more exists than the surface
beyond what your eye can see
a world of hope for you to flee

Hope is that four letter word
where pain can sometimes be cured
even if only as a temporary escape 
normalcy may yet again take shape

You have the willpower to create change
but first remove yourself from all that's strange
in the end, if to truth you will readily submit
know, to follow truth, your heart will commit

Train yourself to become diligent in your pursuit
to everything that is evil, make yourself as a mute
when you find the truth, it will be what day is to night
from this point on, your worries and fears will take flight 

Faith strengthens you, allowing you even in darkness to grow near
with it you won’t give up, successfully you will conquer your fear 
first be prepared, what you believe in you must be willing to fight
trust in this battle you wage, and victory will surely be in sight
