The War Within

"I didn't know anything was wrong."
How could you see the tears stream down my face all night long?
Don't blame yourself, it's not your fault.
You're not the one who brought my joy to a halt.

I'm trying to tell you that it'll be alright.
I'm doing my best, putting up that fight.
But it's getting so hard to find the light.
It's getting harder and harder to define my plight.

It'll be okay, one day it will.
I won't allow my joy to remain at a standstill.
I know someday I'll have my life's fill.
Just for today, I've got a monster to kill.
