Rising above and above all...

Rising above and above all,

Rising alone from my great fall.

Mending the pieces silently,

My heart was broken violently.

Healing my soul; curing my mind,

It’s like to fail I am inclined.

Tired of the tears in my eyelashes,

Today I will rise at last from the ashes.

Sticks and stones (but words can kill),

Will break my bones (and that they will).

I will not shed another tear,

This is a plea that is sincere.

This is the feeling I’ve come to know,

This is the pain I must let go.

And I will rise and break these chains,

Get rid of the poison that runs through my veins.

But above all and this one is true,

I will not hurt because of you.
