I Shall Rise

I shall rise.

You put me down.

I shall rise.

You stabbed my heart with insult remarks.

I shall rise.

You say everything I am is wrong. I can’t do nothing right.

I shall rise.

You shatter my world, say I’m worthless, an ignorant fool.

I still rise.

I hear your voice and cruelty haunt me in my night. Maybe, maybe you are right.

Yet I still rise, bloody and torn. I look normal no one knows.

I die…I cry little each night, but I am never going to die.

My soul shall rise.

I will survive.
