Against The Odds

If this were a boxing match

It would’ve been stopped long ago

Every time I stand back up

Life lands another blow

 

Bantam versus heavyweight

I never stood a chance

Every hook and uppercut

Hits me like an avalanche

 

I try to keep my guard up

Sometimes I land a jab or two

But the blows keep raining down

And there’s nothing I can do

 

I can’t escape this beating

In this ring there’s no retreat

Yet though I know I cannot win

I won’t just let myself be beat

 

While there’s times I think it’s best

To let myself be counted out

For now I remain determined

To make it through this bout

 

The world would see me beaten

Urging me to take a dive

But the people in my corner

Give me reason to survive
