I have lived in a world of hurt

Fighting the arm wrestle of life

Every time I have made a comeback,

My wrist has been bent back to the floor


I have made the decision

Defeat is not an option

I have fallen but have not stayed on the ground

I can feel the wariness of my opponent growing


Winning does not mean having the upper hand

It means to persevere

As many times as I have been broken, I have been put back together


We have come to a standstill

Persistence is key

One more second

One more push


And I have won.
