Hold on to that fiber of hope you clench tightly in your grasp
It's worth struggling through the anguish and gloom that seems to last

Your mind won't let you believe it as your brain is stuck in the past
Believe in a rich life of tomorrow, and hope for peace to be vast

Life that is fulfilling waits just around the bend
but you must swim, not sink in sorrow as you allow your heart to mend

A fighter is one who prevails in a life of uncertainty
steadfast pushing forward when otherwise wishing to flee

Believe that your strength won't be wasted even though change is not so apparent
Change can't be hastened and isn't always miraculously sent

Those around seem void of understanding as if in deep slumber
not seeing the horrible spell they are under

YOU are the one who remains alert
Move forward, be strong and heal through your hurt
