I Came to Win

Hopefully it will rain

I’m praying it will rain

Maybe it will take the pain away

Wash it away from me

We live in an ocean with predators

All smelling blood

No one can stand just as one alone

 

I came here to not go back

I ain’t going down without a fight

I’m not accepting defeat this time

I’ll rise with an army who feels the same

This time I’m gonna win

 

I lay crying, trying

Not to focus on you abandoning me

Not just me but my family

A burden I carry everyday

On my back getting heavier and heavier

Pushing me to my knees and onto the ground

Maybe that’s why I don’t want to give effort into things

I don’t want to get hurt anymore

Afraid of every turn, that it’s all gonna be a mistake

There’s a lot my heart can’t handle

Had a knife held at me before

I want to chase everyone away

Want to get back to what really matters

It’s not about what happened

It’s about how you had escaped it

 

I came here to not go back

I ain’t going down without a fight

I’m not accepting defeat this time

I’ll rise with an army who feels the same

This time I’m gonna win

 

Packing everything that hurts in my chest

Dragging me into everything

I hear the criticism loud and to my face

Drills in my mind every time

But who knew letting it go would help?

I wipe the tears from my eyes

I get up and rise with my fist in the air

With your hands in mine

I know I’m not gonna die

With your support and love

I give back to others who need it too

Yea we go against enemies

But be thankful to have them

So you can prepare yourself for an even bigger enemy

It’s a never ending battle but it makes you stronger

 

I came here to not go back

I ain’t going down without a fight

I’m not accepting defeat this time

I’ll rise with an army who feels the same

This time I’m gonna win

 

Suddenly realizing truth in a time of fear

Do not see me as a girl with a line or word

See me as guidance I represent and entire suffering generation

Spread across the world

Never turn down a stranger

Don’t become enemies with friends

Family is number one

And feel your heart beat every second

Use those seconds to help someone’s heart beat

 

You came here to not go back

Ain’t  going down without a fight

Don’t accept defeat this time

Rise with an army who feels the same

This time WE’RE gonna win

The End
