I am a Warrior


You fooled my heart
Never kissed my face
Never held my hand
Never looked at me With a smile
Like a mother should
Like an angel should

Without any care
Only instructions
Were what you gave me
You shoved me aside
Like a broken glass
Like I never mattered

Maybe I should never have met you
You inspected me and judged me
Like you were in a court
Like it was illegal I was alive

The scars you gave me
Comes back and tyrannizes me
Snatching the little happiness I get
Like I don’t deserve to be here
Like I don’t deserve to be loved

Trying to forget but
You pull me down
And make me kneel
Like I am wicked
Like I am vicious

Tired of you scaring me
Tired of you catching up with me
You only let me down
Won’t allow me to move on

I will fight back
I will fight with the darkness
Like I have never been hurt
Like I have never been broken
Like I have never been wounded
I am a warrior.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
