It’s hard to be good when you’ve been bad for so long

It’s hard to do right when all you know is wrong


Its hard to be righteous when you’re used to sin

It’s hard to know God when you don’t know where to begin


Its hard to do right when bad feels so good

It’s hard to resist temptation and do what you know you should


It’s hard to rise above when you’ve been so far below

Its hard to show love when you’ve lost you’re soul


Its hard to be happy when you’re life’s filled with pain

It’s hard to be normal when you’ve been told you’re insane


It’s hard to be in the moment when it hurts so bad

It’s hard to be a good father when you’ve never had a dad


It’s hard to be a good friend when you’re afraid of being exposed

Its hard to be warm hearted when you’re hearts been froze


It’s hard being authentic when it means standing out

It’s hard to have been hurt by the ones you care most about


It’s hard to be yourself when you don’t know who you are

It’s hard to call out to god when god seems so far


Its hard being free when you’re shackled from inside

It’s hard when all you want to do is hide


Its hard standing up when you’re the only one

Its hard doing something that’s never been done


It’s hard speaking up when you’ve been silent for years

It’s hard to see clear with eyes full of tears


It’s hard to face reality, its easier living a lie

It’s hard to accept the truth when you always question why


Being hard is an excuse to let bad win

But that by itself would be the biggest sin


God doesn’t give us a test we cannot pass

He gives us everything we need to complete the task


To pass or fail is all up to us

But the one who pass earns Gods trust


I have a battle to fight that is fought within

If God is by my side I know I can win.
