Broken and defeated.
You will not keep me down.
I will rise from your oppression,
From your drought.
I will seek out new pastures,
drink from the well of love, and
I will be set free.
I will abandon your desert of rejection.
Your uncaring touch, barren of emotion.
I will crawl on hands and knees,
Until rain falls upon my broken body.
I will soak up my tears.
Hydrating my tissues and cells.
I will rise once more and leave you burning,
In the sands of bitterness.
