My Spirit Stays True

Oh my life has been a warrior’s journey
There have been many battles
All with my own demons
There has been great darkness
I walked through it
Many I have known have fallen
Some by their own hand
I have pressed on
Often wondering why
I have been brought to my knees
Until I stayed there
I have learned humility
And the power of kindness
I chose to persist
Even as mind screamed doom
And I saw the light of love
Somewhere in the distance
And walked towards that light
Until it became me
Now I carry the scars
Of past battles
And a worldly knowledge
Of the patterns of life
But my spirit stays true
Lit as it is by love’s brightness
As it beams out for others
To navigate their way home.
