Through It All

leave behind the trails of the agony in the passing years

the tremors of the world that burden the soul with fears

the haunting of the dawning with hearts falling tears

i walk through it all… i took the steps, dreadfully dares

stiff and high, i buckled, never look back for i may fall

remained heads high, with visions of dreams, stand tall

this is the ladder of passion long-lived in a certain goal

i follow the voice within from the longing of a silent call

through it all, i will stand steadfast with time till the end

even in heavens call my glorious soul i commit to send

in strong faith and hope, i trust in the days to commend

for i surrender all that is left in love, on my knees bend

the joy and happiness unseen from the broken step i take

carefully place my steps forward in little moves to make

reaching out the awaiting lights of visions i won’t forsake

i will live through with a promise to myself i will not break
