I. S.H.A.L.L. N.O.T.

I shall not give up my faith,
Even if He closes all of heavens' gates.
I shall not give up my fight,
Even if He shines no shining light.
I shall not surrender,
Even if He tears me asunder.
I shall not sell my soul,
Even if He offers all.
I shall not shy from pain,
Even if all my efforts are in vain.
I shall not sit and cry,
No matter how hard He tries.
I shall not stop believing in love that's pure,
Though a thousand times my pleas He may ignore.
I shall not give up on winning,
Even if all my hopes are thinning.
I shall not go down without a fight,
Even if I run out of all my might.
I know the path is lost, and courage left is naught.
And even though His sharp blade is cutting into my throat,
Right till the moment I can stand on my feet,
I shall not; I shall not accept any defeat.

(Inspired by Invictus and bullshit.)

We are trying to get 150 followers on our blog, if we reach this goal, the children of our local adoption home for childrens home society, will get a shopping spree for things needed like socks, art supplies ect.
So if you could please help us we would really appreciate it

The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.
