I Am My Own Soldier


                                                        I keep reminding myself

                                                         everything will be okay

                                                        that the wounds will heal

                                                    and the monster will go away

                                        I keep fighting for happiness and peace within

                                              but the monster keeps wearing me thin

                                                          I am my own soldier

                                        there's no way that's going to stop me

                                                              no sir it won't

                                                   I will keep fighting this war

                                              even if I fight until the day I croak

                                            because one day this war will cease

                                                and the monster will surrender

                                            that will be the glorious day of peace

                                              and I will hold my chin up proudly

                                                 because I am my own soldier
