Rising up to Be Unbreakable


Rising up to Be Unbreakable

            Struck down

            By lightning

            Washed up ashore

            Lay in exhaustion


            All around

            Wrecked, stranded, forgotten

            The world turned

            Away it gave


            Nothing but pain


            Shunned you are

            But strong


            You take back

            What can stack

            Wood of hope

            Fire for light


            Endless nights

            You prevail

            Unlike those before

            Who lay waste


            Corroded into sand

            So all else

            Has become

            So you live


            Rising up to be unbreakable
