7 Spanish Angels – This is My Last Fight

Everyone is fighting a battle inside, no one knows anything about.  I have been facing addiction and anxiety for years, and not many people have known about my alcoholism until recently, since I have completely made it public.  The question is: Does it really have to be a ‘battle’ you are fighting, or could it be a situation / disease that is fueling your soul to stand taller, and be stronger?

Once I stopped feeling sorry for myself about my addiction, and other things in my life, everything became much more positive.  I started to think clearly again, and realize everything happens for a reason.  In terms of “this is my last fight”, I am done trying to ‘fight’ all of the adversity, and instead, roll with it.  Am I laying down my sword, absolutely not, but am I sick and tired of being sick and tired, yes.

This song came to mind when I was thinking about things in my life, and how everything is going to continue to change each day.

I STAND UNDEFEATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

He looked down into her brown eyes
And said “say a prayer for me”
She threw her arms around him
Whispered, “God will keep us free”
They could hear the riders comin’
He said, “this is my last fight
If they take me back to Texas
They won’t take me back alive”

There were seven Spanish angels
At the altar of the sun
They were prayin’ for the lovers
In the valley of the gun
When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared
There was thunder from the throne
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home

She reached down and picked the gun up
That lay smokin’ in his hand
She said, “Father, please forgive me
I can’t make it without my man”
And she knew the gun was empty
And she knew she couldn’t win
But her final prayer was answered
When the rifles fired again

There were seven Spanish angels
At the altar of the sun
They were prayin’ for the lovers
In the valley of the gun
When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared
There was thunder from the throne
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home
