I am not broken,
Though my energies spent,
You were hell bent on destroying me
Though you faked concern, cloyingly
I am the master of me.
I AM the master of me
Boundless strength inside of me
A cleansing well to use
To fight memories of abuse
To reconnect my head to my body
Dispel the thoughts when they get rough
To take control, protect myself, kick back say enough is enough.
I am tough
My resilience knows no bounds
Everybody comments on it
So my inner strength can be found
Testament to my survival, my strength is here already
I need to grip stability
So no-one gets the better of me.
“The ability to withstand force or stress
Without being distorted, dislodged or damaged”
So when cruel witches or memories try to fuck with me
I’ll put my feet up and have a sandwich.
Skeleton strong, muscles turning to steel,
Should a vortex try and drag me in
I’ll nail it for real.
I’ll keep my focus finely attuned
This isn’t the time for open wounds
For now survival is the only key
No evil past or present will get the better of me.
