Never Gave Up

I’ve struggled through thick
I’ve fought through thin
But during my heartache
I never gave in

I ignored the odds
I sided with faith
But it hasn’t always
Ended up that way

I silenced the screams
I welcomed the laughs
Criticism is hurtful
So I stuck to the facts

I lost many loved ones
But I never lost myself
I kept on walking
That path through hell

I killed my demons
But never sided with angels
I welcomed the battles
And pitied the Devil

I stayed on my path
Though at times I strayed
And now I see the end
With all the beautiful sun rays

Many times I gave up
But I didn’t give in
And I’ll continue fighting
Until the very end.
