I, have lost
I've felt the strain
I, have wept,
I have felt the pain
Nights, so long,
And so strange
Life, felt like
Living in a cage!

So, alone!
So empty inside!
Fire, burned out!
Even the embers had died...!

At least, according to the voices in my head
But, you see...it's me that's not dead
In spite of all that they were planning,
It's the end...and I...

Am the last man standing

I am the last one!
Scorched on my skin and torched to my core!
Suffering for a lifetime!
Until I decided not to take it anymore!
Illuminated! By the fire that burns within...!
Forged and tempered...
Born to win

(I am the last one, I am...the last one)
(I am the last one, the last, last one)
The last man standing...

I, have hurt,
The ones who've hurt me
I, have screamed,
Until the words were deserting
Days, so long,
While I acted so brave
To! My life!
I was a slave...!

So, alone!
So empty inside!
Fire, burned out!
Even the embers had died...!

At least, according to the voices in my head
But, you see...it's me that's not dead
In spite of all that they were planning,
It's the end...and I...

Am the last man standing

I am the last one!
Scorched on my skin and torched to my core!
Suffering for a lifetime!
Until I decided not to take it anymore!
Illuminated! By the fire that burns within...!
Forged and tempered...
Born to win

(I am the last one, I am...the last one)
(I am the last one, the last, last one)
The last man standing...!

Burn! Burn! Burn away!
All! The thoughts! Of yesterday!
Cut! The cord! Sear it with flame!
Cast the noose aside and turn...!
Into a new day!

Don't be...so alone...
Never be...so empty inside...
Learn and remember who you are...

And the fire can never be denied!

I have been lost...
I have felt the pain...
I have been hurt...
But it's been me whose gained...

It's the end...and I...

I am the last one!
Scorched on my skin and torched to my core!
Suffering for a lifetime!
Until I decided not to take it anymore!
Illuminated! By the fire that burns within...!
Forged and tempered...!
Born to win! The last man standing!
I am the last one!
I am...! The last man standing!
I am the last one!
I...! Am the last man standing!
Burn! Burn away...! All the misery of yesterday...!
Cut the cord...! Sear it with flame...!
Be the last one!(The last one...)

Be the last man standing...

I have often said that victory in life, victory over what happens to us, hurts us, brings us to our knees, it doesn't always come from actually beating what it is that confronts us.

Many things, they can't be beaten, our will can't reduce them to nothing. Those things can only be overcome, outlasted.

Survived.

We must, literally, be the last man standing.

Open your mind to what you can do, to what you feel, to what you believe, and to the world around you, ILLUMINATE your soul, and you will BE the last man standing.

Never, ever, let the embers die out, keep the fire that is in you burning, always, no matter what is done to you. :heart:

Welcome, to the revolution.

My dear why do you cry?

you have a broken heart,

please let me try

to mend this pieces together

for its heave storm you have weathered

Come to me I'll let you rest

I'll crown you my daughter

for you deserve the best.



Can't you see?

That I know what you can be?

I have plans for your brilliant life

and your wounds will heal with time

its the beauty of life i don't want you to miss

for you were made for more than this

clean that crown i gave you

be proud for I have made you

yes, life will always leave its sting

but you are still precious to the king.



you are mine to keep

you lovely thing

a gorgeous creature

a piece of the king

a gem that doesn't know it shines

take my hand and you'll be fine



you are worth more than you know

all of this i have shown

just for you my doll

for you were made to have it all

Don't let those who lie

tell you that you're not mine

because I've held you in my hands



you are my strong queen

nothing like you've ever seen

for i know what you are and you've braved so many wars

your mind and soul purified

even i am mystified

without soil or taint

an unseen masterpiece i had to paint.
