I Stand

Rating: 4.2
Though hatred rages against this noble heart
With its deadly griping piercing claws
Yet will I stand to face the green-eyed beast
Standing against such infinite odds
With dogged dreams of pursued success
Unfolding before a lonesome sight
Can I fight forever?
How long must I resist?
The pressures of this hostile world, slowly taking its ugly toll
Although the sky may appear dim, with dark dusty clouds hanging
Yet I stand, venturing still with very great expectations
Never faltering to faulty condemnation
The choice is mine, my destiny firmly determined
Forever standing steadfastly, against the pain and trials of this hollowed world
Taking its blows but fighting back
Knowing freedom is one day certain
Struggles indeed, alas will bring forth worthy fruit
Once hope remains, must I forever still stand?
