To my only guiding star

Beaming through my darkest night

My best is everything you are

*

Every day another unwinnable war

Still I stumble through the plight

To my only guiding star

*

Though life becomes an abattoir

Where dreams die in cries of fright

My best is everything you are

*

Cruel words drag me down like tar

Yet I hold on to all that's good and right,

To my only guiding star

*

When hardships leave their scar

that douse and dim my inner light

My best is everything you are

*

Trapped behind life’s prison bars

Dreaming of the day I take flight

To my only guiding star

My best is everything you are
