So steep be the stair
That sits victory’s chair
While gasping for air

I face hurdles that impair
This disarray and disrepair
Requires strength to repair

It’s why i formidably pair
For this treacherous lair
A strong spirit and flair

No, life isn’t a dreamy funfair, it’s a daunting affair
So, it is futile to fight fair, in a world that is unfair

So all behold and beware
I was blind and unaware
Now I see and am aware

It is war that I declare
With fiery might I glare
As war trumpets blare

I’ll not cower and scare
I’ll be brave and I’ll dare
Cross lands barren; bare

Life’s no dreamy funfair, it’s a daunting affair
It is futile to fight fair, in a world that is unfair

I must conquer this nightmare
To escape from life’s snare
And life trials that ensnare

The soul and spirit I rear
Won’t fall to wear nor tear
Of all frictions I must bear

From nothing, from nowhere
To something, to somewhere
Never will I stop till I get there

Life’s no dreamy funfair, it’s a daunting affair
It is futile to fight fair, in a world that is unfair

To God above the cosmic layer
On my knees I say a little prayer
Christen me A dragon slayer
