Bruised hands,

Black eyed,

Split lip,

Won’t cry.

Been knocked down,

But I got back up

This is my last stand

Just take my hand.

And I’ll keep fighting.

 

Keep moving.

Won’t look back,

Not anymore.

Been shoved around

Well that’s said and done.

I know now

That

This is my fight.

 

Will keep going

Can’t tell me to back down

No, not anymore.

Can barely breathe

Keep stepping on my feet

Been tripping

Spinning

Falling

But I get back up.

This is my fight

 

Can’t keep me away.

I’m not at this alone

Despite what you say.

Been bleeding

Been hurting

But that only shows

That I’m still living.

You can keep trying

To bring me down.

This is my fight

 

I’m not alone

And it took me too long

To realize

That backing down

Won’t stop this.

I’ve gotta stand tall

And

Keep

Fighting.
