Spirit of Strength

despite those that bet against her

she’s still here, still breathing

through the darkest of the nights

she’s still here, heart beating

she found her strength, she fought the fight

she kept her fire, she shined her light

her soul is tired, she needs rest

you’ll find her curled at mercy’s feet

drenched in remnants of regret

amidst bottles of attempts

to drown the voices in her head

finally finding peace

her loneliness sleeps
