These are my scars.
I stand tall above the mound and reach for the stars.
Every step I take lights up with fire
There are no boundaries to my desire
Make no mistake I’m a lethal woman
My poison can be deadly and your remedy.
And try as you might you can’t absorb my energy
This is my body.
Every curve tells a story
Every inhale and exhale swells like a waterfall
I move to a rhythm that you can’t even hear
So do you want to go higher?
Pay close attention as I will only mention this once.
I can have my cake and eat it too
I can choose to keep a piece for you.
These are my eyes.
They speak the truth despite your lies.
I went to the ends of the earth and STILL brought back flowers
You doubted my faith and you scorned my powers,
I washed my tired body after the fight and stood silently by the light
Because darkness is no match for me
I walk and the earth trembles
You turn your gaze because you are too weak to see
This fire that is within me
This is my heart.
It’s stronger than its pain
It swells with love
And the love I feel can not be squandered
Even though my mind has wandered
To moments of silence and remorse
It’s all par for the course
The pulse you hear cannot be silenced
It will embrace your hate
It will envelop your fear
It will transform you.
If you let it.
