I'm A Survivor

As much as life tries to knock me down,

I am a fighter.

I stare its bullshit in the face

and let the bullets fly by,

but when it finally strikes home,

its never there for long.

I destroy everything that tries to tear me down.

I am a fighter.

When the odds are against me

and everything points to my death

I'm still alive and standing tall.

I'm a survivor.

I'm a fighter.

And when they finally break my bones

And leave my lying motionless on the ground

Soaking in a pool of blood and tears

I know I can rise above it all because

I am a fighter.

I'm a survivor.

I am a goddess.

I will thrive.

I'm a survivor.
