Conqueror

Never let anyone get you down on your knees
Because you are the conqueror and you are
The savior. Only you can take over and seize

Mountains. Even with the smoke, fire and char
All around you are still the conqueror. With all
The things they throw you shine like the star

You have become. The sturdy and brick wall
They try to build around you cannot hold you
In. Every time that you stumble or trip or fall

Over your feet they laugh, but you get up to
Show them who is quiet now that you can
Become the conqueror or defeater. They knew

When you were weak, but never the best man
Or woman they would not acknowledge or
Will accept. They never saw that you began

To build from the ground. They cannot ignore
The power you have now to become the queen.
You are the one sneaking through the back door

Completely unheard, undetected and unseen.
You wear your armor well, like another layer
Of skin. You will make everyone feel unclean.
