#132 Fighting for joy

In a world of darkness, I persist to employ,
I struggle, I battle, fighting for joy.
Through trials and tribulations, I strive each day,
To find the light that will guide me on my way.

Though shadows may taunt, and doubt may deceive,
I’ll never surrender, for I do believe,
That in the depths of my heart, a flame burns bright,
Igniting my soul…
