The Struggle [CTPWC]

Every day moving against an ever-rising tide,
Nothing was ever given to me, not a single thing
My struggle not for money, nor pride
No, my struggle for me is against the rising

Of that tide, my struggle is simply to survive.
Many have known what hardships I face,
And many have fallen in its deadly trap,
Never having pulled it off with such dignity and grace,
But yet again it’s another hard cold slap.

Another two steps back I’m thrown,
Another obstacle to be defied,
Another day I will have shown,
My strength will not subside.

Success is not found in giving up,
It’s in failing but rising once again,
To face it with uncorrupt
Willpower and stick it out then.

For I am the force that will not be reckoned with,
I carry the power of the wolf in my soul,
And I am the one determined herewith
That I shall never fold.
