Born from the fire clean, crawling in the dirt like war
5 years, my mother gave a voice for war.
10, I was dead, born again with eyes for war
By 15, hate was the name of my war

Wash me in the river
Give me to the pain of LifeWar

20 years gone, and father told me life was like war
Hands to the bone, 25 years of war
30, I wake to the sound of souls at war
I will pass through, buried in the flag of my war.

Wash me in the river
Give me to the pain of LifeWar

    Life as a christian is a struggle and a battle, but like the other person said stay true to yourself, i think he was saying one of his battles was hate, and he had to work through it.

    That's not according to scripture. You have to love those who hate you. Our battle is not against flesh and bone but the spiritual. Love your neighbor, even if they hate you.

    My meaning is being born a child of god and fight against those who hate you for your religion and staying true to who you are through the whole thing.
