You can't keep me down
I'm no longer your clown
Your words are like weapons
But my faith is a shield
Your knife doesn't cut all that deep
Anxiety is not insecurity
Your words reflect your own impurity
I am calm within myself
I am in control of my own well-being
Your words no longer hurt me
I was wounded, now I'm healed
Karma has our fates concealed
Some people dwell on the past
I've let it go and moved on
My future is bright and amazing
I believe in me
Something others failed to see
I am as strong as an ancient oak
I weather the storms of life
And I love myself more for it.
