The Fighter

A heart become hardened by life’s painful knocks

Can melt in the warmth of a smile

And tender emotions locked tight in a box

Awaken to brave a new trial


A hope rendered fragile, extinguished by pain

Can strengthen at once with success

Rise up with the courage to try one again

Stepping over past failure and mess


The human capacity to overcome

Is one of life’s miracle gifts

To see spirit flare in a heart crushed by grief

Re-inspires, justifies and uplifts


So don’t be defeated, whatever the cause

Use the soil at rock bottom to grow

Success in the future can always be yours

Your potential is more than you know
