I Sing, I Shout

i sing, i shout
to all the world:
life is precious, delicate. i beg
love every moment, both perfect and in pain
for every girl who's ever bled, smile a thousand times
teeth showing because
she can't

live for her, for the girl who gave up
her soul living on in your beauty. i sing
i pray i shout i beg

write poems, angry letters
and nonsense words on parchment
paper, dry and cracked
as their history

take the knife you used to use
and chop chop chop
at nothing but
air

(because)
you are more beautiful than you dare
to dream

i am singing
can you hear me?
i am shouting
can you hear me?
i am begging, begging, praying
can you hear, hear the words,
the beautiful nonsense i am
singing ?

and when i shed those tears
that just won't stop
i know
know life beats me down beyond repair
know every day has the power to break me
know love is always hand in hand

with pain
know my aching never really stops
know blood is a comfort and death is temptation
But i know

I Won't Bleed.

I Won't Bleed.

for all the girls who never could
continue on with
love in their hearts and
breath to their lips
for all the girls who gave their lives
who couldn't survive
who didn't revive

to all those girls who couldn't live on:
your eyes, in mine, reflect
i know your story
and i
i am an angel
and i will live on
the girl inside me
i know is strong,
I Continue On.

i sing, i shout,
i live out loud
this constant pain
is just the flip-side
of survival
I look in the mirror, I see my angel
and my scars, countless scars
are fading into memories of dreams and
seamless stories that read:

I Won't Bleed.

I Won't Bleed.


I Won't Bleed.
