you take away

You can stand there
and take away everything
but I can still hope
where there's a will
there's a way
and in my life
I will get the one thing that
actually means something
to me
I will get
the one thing
I've worked so hard
to achieve
and there's nothing
you can do about it
you can torment us
and hold us far apart
but I will get him back
in my arms
and my arms only
I will keep him sacred
in my shadowed heart
and hold him as my own
simply because
you want him too
and I refuse to allow you
to use my heart against me
by yanking and snipping its strings
like you char my roses I've given him
and you've tainted
the only simple thing we shared
you stand between us and
tear us to shreds
you try to take away our will
and make us lose our way
our “us-ness”
you took away the only thing I could achieve...

I love how you used the cliche "Where there's a will, theres a way." I always say this to myself before doing something challenging.
