I’m fighting to hold on
and stay with what I know is true.

God, there is no one
more beautiful than you.

But right now,
I feel all alone.

I hate the desolate feeling
in this place called my home.

Winter’s coming soon,
and I’m trying hard to fight.

But with all of this darkness around me,
it’s hard to know what’s right.

God, won’t you guide me on my broken path,
please help me find my way.

I want to make it to your loving arms,
in which I will always stay.

The world I’m in is
crushing me,

And sometimes I fear
I’ll break.

So I cry out to
you again,

And my troubles are yours
to take.

God, why do I doubt you,
when I am in fear?

Why do I run,
when I can feel you near?

Please make me shine
with the light of you,

And help me live
like you want me to.

Please take my sadness,
Take my pain,

And bring my joy back again.

Please fix this broken heart,
and my broken world
that has fallen apart.

You alone are the one true King,
and it is to you alone I sing.

You've gotta take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you got and remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong but always remember life goes on

To be nobody but yourself in a world that is trying it's hardest every night and day to change you into everyone else is to fight the hardest battle a human being can fight, and never stop fighting.

I love this poem! :) The voice of the speaker is so clear and pure and honest, it has a really lovely style :)
