She’s hurt and no one will save her ⠀

So please go and tell her⠀

Tell her,⠀

Stillness was never your strength ⠀

So be kind to your weakness⠀

Tell her,⠀

Your wavy lioness mane⠀

Let it down⠀

Let it dance ⠀

Do not tame her thoughts ⠀

Her beauty was dimmed, I know⠀

And her fire was put to sleep for long ⠀

By them all⠀

Tell her to stand tall⠀

Stand tall⠀

Let me honour your stubborn spine⠀

Stand tall ⠀

Let me tattoo your medals on every line ⠀

Tell her,⠀

I see your legs ⠀

Tired and shaking ⠀

A desert’s length you must have ran⠀

For them to be so aching ⠀

Tell her to rest⠀

Rest now with songs of this breaking⠀

A lover in you is the creator making ⠀

Tell her,⠀

You are tired, I know ⠀

But here you are ⠀

Standing in all your glory⠀

Your scars⠀

Your wounds ⠀

The lines, that broken smile ⠀

Finally arriving ⠀

At the gates of wonder and brave lions ⠀
