EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE MAY TALK ABOUT ME AND SAY UGLY THINGS I MUST STAND FIRM.
I AM FIGHTING TO STAY SANE IN THIS CRAZY WORLD FIGHTING TO KEEP A COOL HEAD IN THE MIDST OF A BATTLE WITH THE WORLD.
I WONDERED HOW LONG COULD I TAKE THIS CRITICISM THAT HAS BOILED ON INSIDE OF ME.
I AM STANDING SOLID REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYONE SAYS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY THINK OF ME.
THEY THINK THEY SEE SOMEONE WHO IS WEAK AND NAIVE WHO DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT THIS LIFE.
THEY BELIEVE TO SEE SOMEONE THEY CAN WALK OVER SOMEONE THEY CAN DRAG THROUGH THE MUD.
BUT I KNOW FOR A FACT I AM A CHILD OF GOD I WILL REMAIN TO STAND SOLID THROUGH MY TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS.
EVEN IN THIS STORM I WILL PRESS ON AND MOVE FORWARD.
