Beating Negativity With Positivity


As I rise
through the ashes of life
I open my eyes
ready to fight

Look into my eyes
see no lies as I say
I can not be defeated

I will fight you
anyway you want me to
but beware I will defeat you
feel the power of positivity
running through my mind

I will defeat you
