Survive #WOTY2018

Image Source

Last year came with many lessons
What's important is I came out alive
This year I will follow the same path
With hope, I choose to survive

I know it is not going to be easy
Into battles, head first I'll dive
I'll learn new things on the way
Finding strength, I choose to survive

If I gave it one try earlier
This time I shall make it five
Step by step, I'll build on myself
With persistence, I choose to survive

I'll stay away from negative people
I recognize them now, I'm no longer naive
Without a thought I'll cut them out
With positivity, I choose to survive

I'll adapt myself to every situation
No matter what, I'll learn to thrive
Having a firm control on my mind
Focused, I choose to survive

Hobbies, passions, love and joy
I'll embrace them with an invigorated drive
I'll proudly swim against the tide
One step at a time, I choose to survive

I'll not stop until I reach my goal
Harder and harder I will strive
Determined, sharp and agile
Fighting everything, I choose to survive

I'll learn to silence my mind
It will no longer be that chaotic hive
I'll slay my demons single-handedly
Against mayhem, I choose to survive

I've chosen an unusual path
I don't know the way, but I know I'll arrive
I'm gonna put in all that I have
This year, I choose to survive
