A lion who fears no one

When the walls cave in on me 

When it is too dark to see 

I feel the anger beneath my skin 

It is part of the darkness buried within

The rage pushes me forward 

It gives me strength 

I have reached a path 

A path of no return 

If you are in my gaze 

You will burn 

I have become a predator 

All that I have seen 

All that I have done 

It has made me into what I am 

A lion who fears no one 

Nyx

My guardians of the night 

I write these lines to my guardians 

For the people who saved my life 

I will never forget you 

I owe my strength 

I owe my hope in humanity 

To each and every one of you 

To those who have fought for me 

For those who stood beside a lost child 

For those who showed me empathy 

I will never forget you 

In my heart you will always have a place 

Each and every one of you 

I will never forget your face

You have made me want to believe 

That angels do exist in this life 

For the few who fight for what is right 

You are my guardians of the night 
Nyx

I’m a dreamer 

With the ups and downs I see

Hills and mountains laid out before me

Here and there I find a path 

Here and there I find a stream 

Every now and then a valley 

Like a story book from a dream

I cherish these moments 

They are rare 

When I suffer I take myself there 

To my valley

By the stream 

Where the grass is high 

Where the water is blue 

In this place I feel 

Like I am home 

In this place I feel 

That there is nothing 

That I cannot overcome 
Nyx

Break the silence 

Sometimes I think that I am beaten 

Sometimes I think that I am done 

That is when I stop and remember 

Everything that you have done 

These actions drive me forward 

These memories that you made 

You were the one I trusted 

My life was in your hands 

Everything I did to make you proud of me 

Everything I did I wanted you to see 

I was your daughter 

I was the one you were supposed to protect 

Instead all you did was lie to me 

Confuse me with truths mixed with lies 

Until all I wanted was to escape you 

Everything I have done 

Is a result of what you did 

Everything I do 

Is a fight to beat you

You are the reason I am who I am 

Yet you are the reason I still breathe 

You are the reason I stand

Well dear father someday you will see

What you created 

What you made 

Someday you will see 

That you will never beat me 

I may be bruised 

My bones may break 

I may wake up everyday and suffer 

From eternal heartache 

But when all is lost I see what you have done 

This is what drives me forward 

This is what makes me carry on 

I will fight for those born to suffer 

What you have put me through 

I will fight through the pain 

I will fight because I have no choice 

There was no turning back when I broke the silence 

There was no turning back when I used my voice 
Nyx

With every step 

Even though I am thrown 

I somehow find my way 

Somehow I have grown

Into something new 

Somehow I have grown 

Smarter with every step 

All that I can say 

Is that I will not give up 

No matter what comes my way 

I will not stop 

Because I survive 

That is what I do 

Nyx

I see the sun

The cage is opened 

I have stepped through

You unlocked the door

I owe my life to you  

You gave me the freedom to keep fighting 

The strength to push past the door 

The strength to pick myself up

To find who I was before 

I will never forget what you have done 

Because of you my life has begun 

The dawn has come 

Now I see the sun 

Nyx

Grip the ledge 

You are in the center of the storm

Grip the ledge and hold on 

It’s not over yet 

Do not give up 

But do not hold your breath

Just keep fighting 

And you will see

This is your fate 

This is your destiny 

Nyx

Strike back 

Is everyone really against me 

Or have I just lost my mind 

I’m too lost to see 

Who is really genuine 

Who is really kind

I am reminded of a time 

When life was a consistent slap 

People would find me 

Shove me into a trap 

Lock the door then turn the key

 I was never weak you see

I was just waiting for that moment 

That perfect moment to strike back 

Foolish

Foolish so foolish I am

Making the same mistakes again

Jumping right in without thought or care

Making my mind up…pushing doubt aside

I like the thrill of risk…I like the feel of the dare

Jumping in makes me feel alive…makes me more aware

Aware of myself…aware of the world around me

I don’t care what people think…I don’t care what people do

I just want to live my life the way I want to

Believe in you

I wake up and I fight each day

To make it better than the last

I always have so much to say

My mind spins round so fast

Life is to short you see…to remain in the past

I look to it for introspection…I look to it to see

That there is so much strength inside of me

I guarantee that anyone that understands this… has been here before

If you look inside yourself

You will see that there is more

More to you than what you think…more strength than you see

Trust in yourself and you can make it

Believe in yourself as I believe in me
