I lost this battle but I must continue to fight
Alligators of bitterness snap and bite
Feeling the pangs of sharp spite
Reminding me of my great defeat
I have grown weary, it’s true, I feel weak
Hoping for the someday when I will — have deep peaceful sleep
Hoping for the someday when I will no longer — have cause to weep
YOU. My constant crashing conflict. Unresolved —
I’ve come completely undone.
Your voice echoes deep and rapid like bullets ricocheting off my walls
Bloody knives in my back — all the punches, kicks, and falls
Cannonballs FLY, CRASH, BOOM!
Leaving in its’ wake dark shadows of dread and doom
My blood and sweat is raining down like my tears
Barely standing — shaking — in a storm filled with fears
Mud slung around as easily as we were flung
Look at the aftermath of your heinous destruction
Soon you will face a new enemy — she is a formidable foe
You pushed her one time too many — but she decided to grow
Pressure makes diamonds. Didn’t you know?
Who is this diamond clad woman with passion in spades?
Don’t recognize her, do you? Watch the memory of that fragile little girl as it fades
She brought her Army in the night, she is ready for another fight
This time — I will take back my power with all my might
I know exactly who I am and my fears have taken flight
Inch by inch — I will gain
Day by day — despite my pain
Until I can say —
I refuse to let you live rent free in my brain!
GET THE HELL OUT! NOW!
