Unrestrained

She won’t be controlled, she won’t be contained
This life that she lives no longer restrained
She stretches her wings, though tender and sore
Slowly lifting them up off of the floor
There’s a new light shining within her eyes
The fear that once ruled here she now defies
Standing up taller with each passing day
She’s now the hunter, no longer the prey

Icy Gaze

She stands there tall and proud
Far away from the crowd
Eyes shining defiantly
Brightly now for all to see
But there’s a coldness in her gaze
And her confidence it betrays
For those who bother to look within
They may see the fire that once had been
But the iciness now within her heart
Shows the ease with which she can fall apart


Standing Up

You see her dance, you see her sway
You see her as just easy prey
But see what hides behind that face
Waiting to put you in your place
She’s not so sweet or naive
As you once seemed to believe
The beast within has found its flame
Never again will it be tame
If you attack she won’t back down
She is finally standing her ground


More Than You See

She still stands, stronger than you thought
Though not the outcome that you sought
For any challenge she will always rise
All those that urge her to quit she defies
She’s not your puppet led by strings
Not your slave or one of your things
And when all that she is you fail to see
Deep in her heart she will set herself free
The greatest gift you just let slip
Through your fingers and from your grip
And with another she will finally find
True passion exists for her heart and mind

Exposure

She stands with defiance in her eyes
No longer does she believe the lies
Told by those she once held dear
Their true selves are now so clear
Deceit and betrayal are all they know
Their ugliness within starting to show
No longer can they hide behind their lies
She tears away each shred of their disguise
Having exposed them she walks away
Head held high, she’s no longer their prey


Step Back

I am no longer afraid of you
Who do you think you are talking to
I’m not the same one you knew before
I have grown to become so much more
The anger within I’ll no longer hold
I will take you down until you are cold
In these flames I have been reborn
No longer bowing to your scorn
The power is now held by me
Time to open your eyes and see
Look now upon what you have made
In the bed you make you’ll be laid


Defiance

Anger seething below the surface
Defiance in her eyes is endless
For all the pain that broke her soul
She has mended and is now whole
She has mended stronger than before
A wall of stone now protects her core
Hatred now flows through these veins
For all the hurt and the pains
Caused by those who do not care
They shatter lives, cause despair
But no more will she take
From those who cause such ache
