Keeping My Eyes On The Prize

There are things about this world I don’t like

But sometimes I don’t seem to have a choice

So I keep holding on with all my might

To a million things that make me rejoice

I’ve been down this road before, I know it

The signs it’s leading me towards despair

It won’t fool me this time for I’m stronger

Since I learnt of the power in pure prayer

I take each day with a newfound purpose

I keep my hope fixed firm before my eyes

Life forever on this beautiful earth

My heart leaps thinking of this stunning prize
