May the sun always shine on your windowpane; May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain; May the hand of a friend always be near you; May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

I stand strong
Ready to fight
For whatever I believe in
For you when you need me
Will I have the strength
To weather all the battles
I do not know
But I know
That I will fight
To that very last breath
I will fight to the end of my rope
I will hold on tight
I will pull myself up
I might stumble
I may fall
But I will be strong
When my emotions become to much
I will blindly whip away the tears
I will soldier on
Though the darkness may try to swallow me
I will swim through it to my destiny
I have faith
I have hope
I will not be buried by the things of this life
I will be strong
I will put up a fight
My strength steams from within
My heart is tough
It has been calloused by the past
It is scared
It is torn into pieces
But my eyes are dry
As I stand in the gap
Shoulder to should
Back to back
With the strong
I am not one of the meek
No matter how hard
They try to pull me down
No matter how much the devil
Tries to slay me
No matter how hard he comes against me
I stand ready
Teeth gritted
Back straight
My eyes on the only one that can save me
For I will fight to my last breath
With the strength that is within me

The author's comments:
I wrote this to encourage people to look within themselves for the strength to keep going. I also wrote this for those like me that will fight the battles of this life until we die. We refuse to give up because we know that within everyone is the courage of a lion and strength to do anything.
