I Will Survive

Source: Desktop Nexus ‘Beautiful Ballet’


Fluid in movement
Reaching towards the heavens
Searching for something
Praying for miracles
Never to be given
Weeping in the darkness
While flames lick my skin
Burning away sins unnamed
Chaos threatening to
Turning away
Spurning love
While secretly yearning
Whispering in dawn awakening
Despite odds overwhelming
No time left
Decision made
I will fight
I will be victorious
I will survive
