My Mind’s Made Up

I made my choice
I stick by it
quit! said a voice
but I’m determined
people screamed foul
but my mind’s made up

I was called out
They said I’m all done
But my choice’ll pay out
And my shame’ll be gone

I said the word
I can’t take it back
My mind’s made up
The die is cast
Though all seemed wrong
And hope’s all but lost
I’ll stand here tall-
For all, by my word

I’ve been through hell
Travelled back and forth
I have stories to tell,
Of life and of death
But I went through all
With head held high
And still fighting on
Till the fight is won.
