i want to punch your face

treading water is not my style
iíd rather swim to the shore
my arms are strong
born a fish breathing dreams of fire
my lips bear witness to untold truths
shaking free of shackles like Marley
the sensibility of Dickens my empathy dwells
taking strides to right whatís wrong
owning my fight, my dukes are up
my words the start of the battle
no silence for this warrior princess
i will not back down, my face my passage
the sense of disrespect is scarring
more so than the tear into my brow
my anger has turned to fuel
my light burning bright
iíve only just begun

i will not back down
i will not back down

down you made me feel
losing a sense of myself
bleeding all over the bottomless floor
losing skin and cartilage
a pack of wolves shredding my faith
my circle is a radiating pinpoint
no room to spare in my finite state
my power a singular maneuver
no longer curled up fetal
head sunk into the sand
the sound echoing a black hole

i will not back down
i will not back down

my ability to adapt is chameleon
let me celebrate my return to my world
my fellow colleagues buffering the blow
their respect, love and admiration a warm glow
my mind at ease with facing the truth
head on, with no mercy, the challenge
how soon can i make things happen

i will not back down...
