A Thousand knives in her back
An excruciating pain to feel
A Thousand different ways to attack
But she chose to heal
A heart still beating
Contrived of sorrow
A past that'd be defeating
but she lives for tomorrow
Taking her pain
As a tool to help others defend
her loss is others gain
A selfless act that transcend
from a broken past
Is letting in from behind the drape
For others to see and feel at last
it aint easy
its all a balancing act
it can make anyone queasy
its her unquestionable life pact
Cause she wont let others fall
in an oh so familiar hole
If they do shes always there to call
to help fill the void and make things whole
Whether its her fast calm words
or her passionately gut wrenching vocals
for anyone to listen and be heard
either far or local
To love unconditionally
Til a no one
Feels like someone
