-Rise Again-

Poetry By: Coralie
Song lyrics

A motivational poem/song that I wrote a few months ago and found earlier today, which was perfect timing to lift my spirits up. I'm going to rise again from the mess that I've become.

You know that I've never

Been one to apologize

Especially when the entire thing

is a fabrication of lies

So even though there are things I may have done wrong,

Stop acting like you didn't play along

Perhaps I never made myself clear

I don't give a shit anymore,

Because now there's nothing to fear.

This is the last time

That I will sell myself

And the last time

To save someone else.

Now I have to start

From the end,

And I have to decide

Who's really my friend,

But god damnit,

I will rise again.

It's so damn funny

That every single time you need me

I'm there.

But if I were to ask you for help,

You're nowhere

To be found.

Well I've learned that lesson

Too many times these days

So don't expect me

To retreat back to my old ways.

This is the last time

That I will sell myself

And the last time

I'll save someone else.

Now I've got to start

From where I found my end

and I have to decide

Who's really my friend,

But damn it,

I will rise again.

Oh, it's every man for himself

I refuse to cry,

I'm exhausted with trying

to keep living a lie,

If you don't want me for who I am,

Then it's easy to see

You were never a man.

This is the end of you and I

Yeah, this is the end

Of you and I...

That was the last time

I would sell myself,

Yeah the last time

I'd save someone else.

Now I've started

from the place where

I thought was the end

And I know who's there for me,

Who's really my friend.

I told you,

I would rise again.

Oh I did rise again.
