Against The Odds

Poetry By: deanfraserphillips

For those whose dreams still matter

Standing on a mountain I view the crimson sun

Thinking of where I've been and how this all begun

Escaping the world of darkness, longing to be free

Etched my dreams into my soul for all eternity

Those that tried to stop me, those who said "Just die"

Dare you now have the courage to look me in the eye?

My heart is on fire now it's free from your remorse

No matter how much you doubted me, I'm a pure unstoppable force

Nothing hits harder than life and all the trouble that it brings

Yet it cannot keep this raven down even with clipped wings

I refuse to be a rat in life, running circles in its race

Failure is not an option; just look me in the face

For what you see is what you get but you cannot keep me down

Because I will be victorious and wear my golden crown.
