The world

Keeps throwing me around

Like I’m some sort of rag doll,

With no real worth at all. 

I’m just another nobody. 

Hell tries to pull me under,

But bet yourself

That I’ll remain to stand tall. 

I never, ever will fall. 

You’ll never see me on my knees

Begging, pleading, for a savior. 

The ocean tides try to suck me in –

Ebbing me away from life. 

Sorry silly sea,

I am my own life jacket. 

And I save myself,

Time and time again.

Nothing and no one in this cruel world

Could stop me or change me. 

I’m a fighter,

A lethal adversary

To all those who choose

To oppress the weak;

I am a survivor.

In any battles,

You better put your money on me,

If you want to be rich. 

I can take it all;

I’m one badass brick wall,

Ready for the punches.

Cuz’ I’ve been through much

And I have this relentless will. 

I’m a fighter,

A lethal adversary,

To all those who choose

To suppress the meek;

I am a survivor.
