For any woman who has ever felt (or been) broken

freedom is my burning right
in opposition to your strings
i still breathe
you cannot take my skin
and stretch it further than its been

but my broken wings still fly
and my shattered heart still beats
thumping out a thunder roll
to the rhythm of sensuality
and ocean violin mourning blues
so tenderly

summer breath shines alive in my eyes
despite your thievery and
dark avenue clandestine
wounding
on streets lit with blood rain
awash with the keen of ripped off
souls

reflections are deceiving
and so is the sky on moonless nights

but
never mistake me
for poor
or for feeble
i am power

in this woman’s eyes
and my female hips
i am me
and damned proud to be

don’t strike your hands down on me
nor try to stifle my dreams
the wind is mine
it belongs to me
lives in my cells and my bones
like it was made for me

fingers like yours cannot reach me
nor bruise me permanently

i may not be the sun but i can
shine like a star

freedom is my burning right
don’t you dare try and steal my flight

For any woman who has ever felt (or been) broken
