THE FIGHT

Today i fought again to live
the hot sun beating on my skin
i’m saying never give in
my body aches like sin
so much i feel unimaginable stress
my tears from this morning gone
god please give me the strength to carry on
i look at people carefree
dream one day that will be me

Today i fought again to live
wandering down endless roads
doors slammed in my face
i want to explode
wondering what’s the next episode
of this journey through hell
i scream
i shout
i yell, and rebel
trying not to let death prevail

Today i fought again to live
drained of all the love i give
i sink deep into the pavement
thinking each time the ground gets too deep
grabbing at my soul for keeps
this is not where i want to sleep
soon it becomes my bed
i’m too tired to lift my head
angels around me i see
is it time to go home?
are they protecting me?

Today i fought again to live
my eyes shut
my body still in pain
sometimes i feel as if i’m going insane
funny i still have dreams
i’m living the nightmare
so it seems
what will become of me?
will i ever escape poverty?

Today i fought again t0 live

AFTER BEING REJECTED BY SHELTER AFTER SHELTER REALITY OF ANOTHER NIGHT ON THE STREET SINKS IN. IT’S A PAINFUL JOURNEY IN MY LIFE, AND MY ONLY OPTION LEFT IS A REHAB WHERE I’LL WASTE 6 MONTHS OF MY LIFE. I’M FIGHTING TO LIVE NOW, AND OPEN ONE DOOR SO I CAN REST MY WEARY HEAD, BUT TONIGHT MOST LIKELY THE CEMENT WILL BE MY BED. IT’S BEEN ALMOST TWO WEEKS, AND THIS GOD SOMEHOW HAS TO END
LOVE KEITH R. WILLIAMS

I’M VERY SERIOUS ABOUT LIFE AS YOU WILL SEE. A AIDS, HOMELESS, HUMAN RIGHTS,AND CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S RIGHT. SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TRAPPED IN THEIR OWN BELIEFS THINKING THE WORLD ROTATES AROUND THEM, AND SURPRISE, SURPRISE IT DOESN’T

    Keep up the fight Keith, there is no way for us to measure the length of a nightmare we sometimes have to endure but I do know there are always better days that will wash the pain and suffering away. Keep strong Keith, never give in..hugs S..
