SURVIVING

 

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.
