Never Stood A Chance

Through the hills and valleys.

I never stood a chance.

Through despair and agony.

I never stood a chance.

 

The hardships I faced.

The battles I charged.

The mercy I was shown.

The charity I showed.

All for naught.

 

In the coldest winter days,

I remained hopeful of warmth.

In the hottest summer days,

I remained hopeful of coldness.

I remained hopeful in doubt.

 

“I never stood a chance did I?”

 

“That’s the sad part – you did once.”

From the hills and the valleys

You journeyed.

From the despair and agony

You journeyed.

The chances you took and spared.

 

The hardships you faced.

The battles you charged.

The mercy you were shown.

The charity you showed.

All for the next chance to do it again.

 

In the coldest winter days,

I remained hopeful of you.

In the hottest summer days,

I remained hopeful of you.

I remained hopeful in doubt.

 

Now from doubt you come.

Doubt of if this was all worth it,

Doubt that you have the strength to continue,

Doubt that tomorrow will come.
