I will rise!

Knock me down
I will rise up

Lock me up
I will escape

Force me into submission
I will gain
strength

You can’t break
A Mother fighting
for her children

You can’t silence
A woman with
a broken heart

You can’t stop
Me!

I will find hope
in the evil
of your eyes

I will find light
in the darkness
of your heart

I will find strength
in your threats

You fuel my fire
You feed my determination
You solidify my resolve

The sun will rise again
and when it does
the world will see

My strength
and your insecurities

My courage
and your cowardice

My compassion
and your hatred

Because in the end

No matter
how hard you try

You will
NEVER
break me!

You will
NEVER
hurt me
AGAIN!

And I will
NEVER
be like
YOU!
