I’m Still Here ~ lyrics – Author Sarah Lamar King


What you took from me was invisible,

But a catalyst to my broken soul;

You thought you had the upper hand

But you can’t touch me now,


I’m breathing on my own now,

Caught myself on the way down,

You invited death

But I chose to breathe again.


This secret’s no longer mine

And every day you live your life,

You left me here to die inside

But I’ve finally told the world

You’re a thief of dreams…


Making it easier to bleed than breathe,

Telling me hopeless is not for dreams


And it seemed

The road ended with you,

But somehow I built one new,


And I’m breathing on my own now,

Caught myself on the way down,

The darkness was my way out

You almost won, but I’m still here…

About the Author

Sarah began writing poetry in the 3rd grade, her first collection of poetry being called ‘Poems Galore’. There were several times throughout life when she had to stop writing, times when she was silenced by life, was void of feeling, or felt too much to put anything on paper.

She finds solace in the elegiac poetry that she writes today. She began sharing some of her pieces on social media and realized how much feeling her poetry brought about in others, her ultimate goal. Sarah has always wanted to be an author and thanks to Creative Talents Unleashed and their publishing contract it was brought to fruition.
