When I am beaten down
When we are broken

The devil finds us all
He is Searching for the weak

We get bumps and bruises
Our bodies stay still
But on the inside we are burning

When the devil hurts us
Some stay down in the rubble

But when the hurting stops and he goes
We help each other back up

Because if he tells us we are weak
Then we will think that we truly are

We refuse to let him weaken us;
Our strength
And together we pick up the pieces;
Together we get back up

The author's comments:

I wrote this in hopes of everyone working together to get back up, to show in the darkest places there may be someone to help you to the light.
