My lifeâ€™s desire, before my eyes
How can I make it so?
Iâ€™ll fight and pray, and work my days
To see it stay, not go.
So up at dawn I find myself,
To make it come about.
Through sweat and tears I do the work,
My efforts tall and stout.
Itâ€™s everything I think, and do,
This building lifeâ€™s success,
For if I slip and halt my deeds,
Iâ€™m sure to fail these tests.
My every step, each gentle sway,
I feel myself draw near.
I know Iâ€™m reaching for whatâ€™s best,
I feel it strong and clear.
Every day Iâ€™ll try, Iâ€™ll fail,
And then I try again.
I know that itâ€™s a worthy cause,
This battle I must win.
And every morning when I wake,
Iâ€™ll fight for what is mine.
This is my cause, my destiny,
It is my right divine.
At times I feel it start to slip,
I freeze, I rearrange,
This journey will not be for naught
Although it seems deranged.
Iâ€™ve worked so hard to beat these tests;
My allies by my side.
I see the end draw near and cry,
â€œThis life is now my prize!â€
Iâ€™ll hold it close against my heart,
This battle that Iâ€™ve fought,
This victory was mine, I know,
My life, and this, my lot.
