Conquering Fate


I've been struggling with you
For supremacy since my infancy
No thanks to whatever made it so
And unfortunately, you've had the upper hand.

It has been struggle all the way
I've walked the tortuous road
Paved with sharp-edged stones
My legs have been pierced,

My blood drips and wets the road
My sweat saunters down to my pant
Thanks to my undaunted spirit
I forge ahead like a wounded lion.

You've overran me, wrestled me down,
I'm kneeling, but I'm not pleading.
I'm still holding your waist.
Knock me down as much as you can,

I'll never let my back touch down
I've vowed to keep my head up
To own up my circumstances,
No matter how twisted, to live up to expectation.
