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.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
