What Am I Fighting For

I was in love once
But that love came at a price
That price was pain
No pain no gain, and tears turn to shame
I am fighting my fear
Fighting my pain
Because without love what do I have to live for
I live for life
But is that good enough?
Is life worth love?
I was once regarded and a smart kid
Because I stood for something
Something that was important to me
But my fears hid my tears
Because I was stanging for fear
I was in love with fear
It all seem that I was fighting for my fear
Instead of being brave I was weak and fearful
No longer, because I am stronger
I am strong enough for love and brave enough to fight for it
