We talk of battles, we talk of wars;
We fight for each other, we fight for a cause.
And though we might wish to fight goblins or elves,
The real wars are those fought inside of ourselves.
Sometimes we don’t know that we’re fighting in there,
And sometimes we’re only too keenly aware –
And though all these battles aren’t fought with a gun,
The battles are real, and the war’s never won.
Sometimes, we will feel worn right down to the bone –
Just understand that you’re never alone.
Some battles we’ll win, and some may leave us bruised:
To fight on is the only way we’ll never lose.
