All my life I have struggled
All of time I have fought
Every day a new battle
Every hour a new loss
I'm no soldier or fighter
Not a hero at all
Just a person imprisoned
In a mind not my own
I can't seem to control it
My life's is not mine
But I continue to struggle
For what I want to be
My flaws they are many
My slights are immense
I have much to atone for

So I push even harder
To topple my foe
For the conquest I dream of
Is to conquer my faults
