Like A Warrior

She waited for change
She stayed
She thought it would get better
But she was wrong

Through turmoil and pain
Thunder and rain
She cried for days
Just wanting to run away

She waited for change
She stayed
She thought it would get better
But she was wrong

There was love at the beginning
Or so she believed
But she was wrong
She was fighting a war she would not win
At least not in the way that she thought

She held on
She screamed
She fought for her life
She prayed
She begged
Help

She waited for change
She stayed
She thought it would get better
But she was wrong

Finally
A choice that was made through her
But not by her
Something else was in control

She needed to survive
She needed to leave
It was time to go

She waited for change
She stayed
She thought it would get better
But it never did and was never going to

Like a warrior through the flames
She emerged
Carrying her shield and sword
Ready for battle

She slayed the dragon
She ran for freedom
She saved her life

She waited to long
She stayed too long
It never got better
So she freed herself and found life again

Like a warrior through the flames
She emerged
Carrying her shield and sword
Coming to win the war
