Fight me again and I’ll stand once more,
I’ll see the good in your fist and take it again.
What’s another bruise on something already so broken?
I fight the tears that heave out in an ugly mess,
Bubbling with the mew of an animal in a snare.
Take your aim and I’ll defend you rather than myself,
I’ll help you drive the arrow home.
Take flight, I won’t blame you,
Soar free on your own ego and tell yourself more lies.
Just don’t fly too high because your wings will burn.
I know, my bloody stumps where they were cut remain.
I fight because its all I know,
Just sometimes I want to glide on an upstream,
Feel the joy of the air and dare to be,
But it scares me so much I give in.
Unable to focus I want to walk and not stop,
To drive into the night to an unknown destination,
To find my wings again and join the stars.
But I’m still here with the broken pieces,
Most of them are not even my own.
I glue the fragments and pieces, I fill the gaps,
It’s never enough.
