Hold on



I may not have much,
But at least, I'm a fighter.
My life has been written,
like a book by his writter.

Struggles have defined,
the way I live life.
Strength comes from living,
and dealing with strife.

What doesn't kill you,
makes you stronger.
If you're still fighting,
fight for longer.

We are resilient,
There's always hope.
Against the current,
Against the slope.

One day at a time,
will get you there.
Try to hold on,
or jump if you dare.
