I will live to see tomorrow
I will live to see the truth
I will live to see a new day
I will rise
I will rise for you

No more will I lose myself
in the pain I ache to feel
I’m done with scars and battle wounds
Mine have begun to heal
I’m sewing up my patches
I’m doing this for you
I’m alive, I’m living
for you

I will live to see tomorrow
I will live to see the truth
I will live to see a new day
I will rise
I will rise for you

I don’t believe in many things
but I believe
I’m not lost
Cus I’ve found the girl who was
So scared
to live
so she died
to see
her reason
in life
her place
without a fight
she let go
too soon
cus she didn’t believe
her life
was worth living
but I
believe
that we
are made perfect
in everyone’s eyes we are human
the mistakes we’ve made
the pain we take
the distractions
we breathe
don’t matter
to me
I don’t care
about your past
don’t regret
what you did
when you were learning
to live
its okay to let go
to be weak
its not strange to think
you have
to be strong
to be truly alive
I see past the mask
which behind you hide
cause I know
who you are
and I love you
for living this life
so far

I will live to see tomorrow
I will live to see the truth
I will live to see a new day
I will rise
I will rise for you

Sometimes its hard to wake up
to get up
and fight a battle I might lose
to know my chances
aren’t worth it
but it will matter to you

for you I didn’t cut
when the pain demanded to be felt
for you I didn’t die
when on my knees I knelt
I prayed for a better ending
I prayed for a better life
I prayed and I cried and set down my knife
for you I didn’t die

I will live to see tomorrow
I will live to see the truth
I will live to see a new day
I will rise
I will rise for you

I will rise

for you

Thank you everyone for your comments! A side note I forgot to mention, the one long stanza, I wrote to be rapped, so if the breaks are abrupt, that may be why.

This is absolutely beautiful. I loved it even though it made me want to cry. Whoever "she" is, I hope she sees how wonderful you are.

The first time I read it I liked it, but the more times I read it the better it gets. It does need some work in places, but it really is good.
