Mountain Against the Wind

How many times can I be hurt

Before I feel pain?

How many times can I be pushed

Before I fall?

How many times can I be beaten

Before I bruise?

The world is out to get me,

So keen on having my tears.

How many times can I be choked

Before I can't breathe?

How many times can I be torn

Before I lay in pieces?

How many times can I crack

Before I shatter?

I try to stand tall,

But the forces against me

Make me slowly crumble.

How many times can I be blinded

Before I can't see?

How many times can I crash

Before I burn?

How many times can I be burned

Before I disintegrate?

I stand alone,

I take their abuse, a wince with every blow.

How many times can I be poisoned

Before I can't move?

How many times can I be stabbed

Before I bleed?

How many times can I be shot

Before I die?

Somehow I stand strong

Like a mountain against the wind,

I hold out for what I know.

Dare them to come,

To try what they may,

But they won't, they can't break me!


 

I am the mountain that faces the wind.
