Rabbit

 

Without an answer you left me for dead

Alone and disturbed of what I became

My body so limp; a storm in my head

From nightmares I watched it frame by sharp frame

 

I wish to make you feel and watch your guilt

You are clueless to the destruction caused

My being castoff; erased what was built

Years given in service; future now paused

 

From blood on stone I stand on weary feet

And watch the heavy darkness turn to dawn

The birdsong is clear, they know and they tweet

It moves within me; a rabbit is born

 

I’ve come so far and you will never know

What I’m now made of or how much I’ve grown
