And I Will Be Okay

Stretch me
Bend me
Scratch my surface
With your lies
Sketch my broken heart
With your eyes
Turn me
Twist me
Upside down
Chisel my face to adorn a frown
Burn me
Bleed me
Cut out my soul
Hide my dignity that you stole
Whatever you do to try to hold me
I'll never be what you've often told me
Time will show you to be wrong
Time will place you where you belong
... And I will be okay

Thank you for being that audience!
