A shadow sneaks across the room
fading and disappearing
from the realm of reality
slipping from existence.

No one notices
the life assocaited with
the soul that quivers
at the sound of their voice.

I am broken, buried deep
beneath these secrets, a part of
me, wall surround me, closing in
but what happens in the end?

A flash of light
and suddenly
I'm not the girl
I used to be.

I will rise above
the tongues dripping with
the bitter juice of
deceit and anger

higher than the words shouted
to mock and kill the hope
of a better future
to bring others down

Yet, I am still broken
a lost soul trying
to find its way home.
Dying, injured from the

words like bullets that pierce my skin.
I am not bulletproof
but I am a survivor.
I will not sink to the levels

of those who have harmed me.
I may be broken,
but I am stronger
and will show my true colors.
