As I Fight (No Innocent Victim)

Character never builds When put to the side to grow on it's own Like the sharpened knife It once had to grind against stone The life that I have chosen I wasn't promised an easy way out But when the hard times come He's there for me That's what He's about As I fight I'm not alone Through the struggles I have grown I failed Him before And I will fail over and over again He promised me not to leave And with that how could I not win Disoriented by change Hard times come that's one thing for sure But He promises me that I won't See one more ounce Than I can endure When I feel like I am a failure That is when I should surrender Never to the opposing attack But to His guidance Right where I am at
