But yet I still try
There are no rewards for anything
I do not even get a simple thank you
But this is my life
But yet I still try to move forward
Even with the claws grabbing at me
Pulling and ripping my clothes
Trying their best to keep me back
But no I must succeed
I must move forward
It's just hard not looking back
At all the terrible faces
And not falling to my knees
With the pain from every knife plunged
Deeply into my back
But I must let the pain drive me to move forward
They must not hold me back any further
