Winning often comes in inches or in the next step
when all you want to do is quit when nothing else is left
you pick yourself back up again sometimes in pain and fear
and remember everything and everyone that got you here

You feel as though you’ve reached the end
and that there’s nothing more
search inside yourself for any hope at all
you wonder how you’ve gone on before

Victory is won in inches in the tiny steps you take
in leaving everything behind and seeing the end that is yours to make
letting go of doubt of fear of pain of those who say you can’t
by sheer force of will you take the next inch just a little more

Nothing comes as sweet as winning won through mighty struggle
the knowing that after all you are still there to stand in victory
for it is not the winning that truly matters in the end
it is the fight that offers the soul something more
