I am still here

Beat me bloody and bruised,
Tear me to shreds,
Gouge my eyes,
Cut my hair.
But no matter what you do,
I am still here.

The vultures!
They swarm me terribly.
Waiting,
Watching.

Those damn vultures want me dead.

You,
You want this day for me as well.
You all watch and wait,
The vultures you are.

You shall wait longer, ravenous birds,
For I, am still here,
I am standing.

Your words may break my mind,
Your blows may break my bones,
And yet,
My heart is beating,
My pulse is racing.

I am still here.
No matter what you do,
No matter what you say,
I am, alive.
