Adversity

I can’t stand

The way you stare at me

This is how you burn through

You think you know who

I am fighting for

But I am no longer yours

I will never be yours

 

I can’t breathe

And know that somewhere

Someone is drawing

Their last breath

You ensure

My suffering

I will never suffer less

 

Adversity

Please set me free

And I’ll send you home

I’ll make sure you return

To the darkness

It will tame you

While I prosper

 

See me rise

Above your terror

This is how you ensnare me

You think you know who

I am fighting for

But I am no longer yours

I will never be yours

 

See me fly

As I collect stars

These wishes are mine

But not to keep

I will spread them out

I will give them conviction

Even as my suffering endures

 

Adversity

Please set me free

And I’ll send you home

I know who you are

The darkness will recede

The light will shine forth

And I will prosper

 

Take me as I am

I will believe

I will thrive

I will find you

There on the other side

Set me free, my enemy

Adversity
