In the Songfacts interview with Shelley Morningsong
, the New Mexico singer explained: "This is a song that's really close to my heart. I believe we're all warriors in one way or another, we all experience similar joys and sufferings in our lives. I always say that life is not for sissies; we must be strong for the journey. From the time we wake up in the morning until we rest our heads at night we are all striving to heal, accomplish, overcome, etc. I want to remind everyone that we are all warriors and to have courage."
