I will pick on that fight, face up, take pride in my pain
my body is tortured, lips bloody, sweat drops like a rain
I will push forward, keep pressing, despite feeling weak
rise early, when skies are grey when days are so bleak
I will do this next step, even when crippled by fear
keep praying and cursing, in silence, for no one to hear
No foe will stop me, no demon, no beast, and no man
And so I keep going until “I will”, becomes: I am

You cannot fulfill your destiny if you are just struggling day by day to survive.
Don’t think about next day – it will surely be painful, but you will be ready for it. Not now, but when the time comes.
Think of ten years ahead. Where do you want to be? Think of the peak of the mountain.
Look up. Look above treetops, above rooftops, above the horizon. Look up and see. Your mission, your goal, your dream.
It is there on the peak of the mountain. From that peak you will cast shadow on the clouds under your feet, you will swallow the wind into your lungs and you will shout your victorious battle-cry.
You will be king of the world, because you have mastered your life.
But first you need to get there.
So now look down.
Look at your feet, and start pushing forward.
Step by step.
In front of your eyes it is just dirt.
But it will be the peak of the mountain that you will see.
Just remember where you are heading.
