I won’t be silenced by your thoughts.
Nor by the words you say.
I won’t be buried in my hole.
Today is a brand new day.
The wrong you did won’t be forgot.
And I won’t hide my tears.
The strength that grew – You cannot stop.
I threw away the fears.
For God turns good the evil thoughts.
You have the power no more.
For it is gone; its death has come,
As life begins to soar.
I will not give you ONE MORE DAY.
You thought you had a ploy?
Your darkness lost – It’s gone for good.
Replaced with God’s great joy.
I let you live inside my head.
Each breath you took was mine.
I take them back. No breath’s for you.
Today I draw the line.
And now a creature has been made,
That you did not expect.
For I am strong and fight for good,
With kindness and respect.
You can’t kill me, for I am back
I’m not against the wall.
No more to hurt the ones like me
For we are standing tall.
I did not quit – You thought I’d lose,
You thought I’d walk away?
But I did not. I just grew strong,
And I AM HERE TO STAY.
