Against the Winds


Against the Winds

Troubles may come my way
When my storms stirring above
I’m running against strong winds
Sometimes I’ve struggled to stay grounded

I’d feel deeply hurt inside
Closing my eyes I’d escape reality
No matter how much my storm blew
I learned to stand alone

The game they made me play
It’s all I’ve ever known
I’ve stood alone under stormy clouds
Trying hard not to drown in the downpour

Words where all I ever had to share
Causing a stampede of dark horses
I rode this journey blinded by rain
 I’m still searching for that rainbow somewhere

Maybe I’d just forgotten to wish upon a star
Maybe I’ll battle this storm forever
Maybe my fate was written in the stars
the endings somewhere upon a breeze

    Our Battles are always there waiting to be fought.. But we have our sheild of protection around us, if we would but realise it.. Our journey would be so bland if we didnt have a few colourful battles and showed off those battle scars now and then.. But when we climb that hill in Triumph and say.. We Won… Really enjoyed this Jewelie
