Break Me Down


Break me down
Into a smaller self
And allow me to see

The light of day
Will break me down
The seeds will begin to spread

But let life be a rejoice
For all that is left to be said
Break me down

And do not leave me
Alone to cry in fear
Of where I will be

Break me down
Do your best
I am not invisible

Therefore you can have a direct aim
And yes break me down
Place a piercing shot on me


I shant be defeated
For I believe
Something you will
Never begin to understand or conceive.
