Cutting to the quick.
Staggering in shock. Wounded by your unexpected, unwarranted assault.
Until a realization occurs. My attacker is a miserable, pathetic wreck.
Temporarily inflicted on me,
Will damage you.
For hatred burns at your core.
And yet… Incredibly, your cruelty ignites my growth. My resolve.
I cannot remain quiet.
I will not be your victim.
You cannot control me.
I am stronger than you think.
You cannot keep me down. I will rise.
