How does it make You feel when You win?
I’d really like to know.
why do You do the things You do?
It honestly isn’t My fault that I have
a beating Heart
and You don’t.
So why make Me suffer?
What did I ever do to You?


Well I’ve got something to say,
so listen close.
I’m no longer gonna be Your puppet.
I’m the stronger One,
the Master of Me,
and You know it.
I know You do.
It’s the fact that always nags You,
the Flaw in Your plan.


You can send Your fiery darts My way,
that’s okay.
The war’s already been waged.
And Me? I’ve chosen My side.
I’m on the winning side.
Because I am a Warrior.
And I am a Skyscraper.
You can try to bring Me down,
but I will always rise again.
Always.


The author's comments:

This poem is quite possibly one of my favorite poems I've ever written. I didn't hold back on this one, I just wrote the words that burned with a passion in my heart. I hope that you all can find a way to relate to these words :)

Oh, and just a little fun fact, I did make references to my two favorite Demi Lovato songs in this poem ;)

Thank you so much Liv!! I always love your comments, but this one really made me smile :) Somehow it never ceases to brighten my day and give me a sense of euphoria when someone tells me they love my work...knowing that the words I wrote, the thoughts I felt, that they touched another person...gosh I just love that feeling. It motivates me to keep writing :) Thank you again for reading my poem and commenting on it!! :D

But only another birth"
