Fight Song

“This is my fight song — Take back my life song

Prove I’m alright song. My power’s turned on.

Starting right now — I’ll be strong

I’ll play my fight song.

And I don’t really care if nobody else believes,

Cuz’ I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me.” “Fight Song” Rachel Platten

Okay — disregard my pet peeve of when words are rhymed with themselves. It’s annoying and yet catchy enough in this song to not bother.

Lately, I have been struggling..finances, feeling alone, teaching at a job I love but still struggling to get enough writing done to make progress on projects, letting go of some parts of me and holding tight to other parts, wanting to be more active, limited by pain…just struggling as we humans tend to do. Just struggling. And of course I will be victorious, I have been every other time, and really, what otehr option is there? So I know it’s temporary, and that it will all work out, but today, I am struggling.

Every time I hear this song, I do a little bit of a Rocky-esque victory dance. If I liked ringtones, I would make this mine for right now. (as my phone is always on vibrate or silent, this would, of course, be silly)

I love the balance and power that writing gives me. I have gotten distracted this past two months and my writing has been rather sporadic and all over the place. My life has gotten off track — I took my eyes off the goal and allowed other people’s lives to come before my goals. As it happened any other time I have put writing on a back burner, I lost a bit of my sense of self and fell down.

Now I am fighting my way back to utmost productivity and proving to myself that I still have a lot of fight left in me. Proving to myself that I can get back to where I was and then go farther than I ever thought I could.



  1. Keep up the good fight!
