Fighting back

As I look around this dusty room
I wish for energy to clean and groom
But my sickness holds me down in doom
My emotions flood me
My mind can't see
All the happiness that I could embody
Everyday I try harder to be
The beautiful person that shadows thee
This shadow it haunts
This shadow it taunts
This darkly shadow my fears it flaunts
My soul it knows it's all a lie
My spirit fights, so it can one day fly

As I look around this dusty room
With no energy to find a broom
Suddenly it hits me like a canon's boom
I am stronger then this expending doom
My energy is meant for love and light
So persistently I continue to fight
Although it aches me, I know it's right
So persistently I continue to fight
Through the day, even more so through the night
So one day my soul can peacefully take flight 
On its everlasting path of love and light
