Words can smack my heart with the strike of a match.
They can make me feel pain and under constant attack.
They can move me forward or make me step back.
Words can also be kind and lighten my heart
To feel the sun and try to move on,
But the scars that hide beneath my skin,
I feel so deeply, I can get lost within.
I let the words burn down to ashes
To set them free
I will show the world I’m strong,
And I will always overcome.
