Fight For Me

I stand alone in this world,

Facing the backlash from others,

Facing the sting of their pain.

No one in my corner,

Feeling all alone.

You ask what I want from you,

Claim to be offering me all your help,

But all I ask is for you to fight for me

That would be the greatest gift.

Money won’t comfort me,

Nor will pretty things,

Just you in my corner is all I need.

Have faith in me,

You know who I am.

So why don’t you fight for me,

Prove you do believe.

Sometimes material things are not enough and you say that point well here. I have a friend whose granddaughter wishes the same thing from her father. A universal theme you tell so good.

KD… some of our greatest blessings in life come as ‘adversities in disguise’. If that ‘someone’ you speak of in your life gives you ‘pretty things’ and it isn’t enough…, if they give you ‘money’ but it isn’t enough…, if everything they give isn’t what you need but they say that it’s the best they’ve got (and you believe it)… be grateful. Though I fully appreciate the importance of having someone whose ‘got your back’… sometimes when there is no one to do that for us we’ve got to continue to do it for ourselves – don’t we. Be grateful for all their kindness and support they have shown…; then try and re-examine your situation as an opportunity to fight your ‘own’ battles smarter, with greater skill and courage. Sometimes we have to be ‘tough as nails’ to make it. Though this is ‘tough’… you will the ‘better’ woman be. Nothing of quality comes ‘easily’. Be well and continue ‘your’ fight

A Word from the Writer
I think I might have omitted this but this is from the view of the eyes of a child speaking to an unseen father who gave things instead of actual love and belief in what she can become. Not based on my life but on someones life very close to me.
