The Struggle Within

Struggling with the demons of the past

Invisible chains hold me fast

Are they there or is it a mirage

The struggle within tries to consume me

Free me from this misery oh Father of light


I am not perfect, but I have perfection living within me

The past, it haunts me & tries to drag me back

I will not go, I refuse

I may fall or stumble

But I won’t go back, we’ve come too far


I have moved on from my sins,

Yet somehow their memory is still so vivid

A lie & and illusion, an attempt to cause me to fall

The rest of my life I will spend becoming what the Father has already placed in me

The struggle within is a victory won long before I was born

Yet it will be my fight until the day I am called home.
