Tear Me Away by Mikaila Cober

Tear me away
Way
Way
Down to the bottom of the sea
Way way down
Chain me to a rock with titanium
I might die
I think I might want to
But…….
I will not
I will show my strength
And break through the metal
And slowly tear through the waves to the surface.
My lungs are burning
As if hot coals have been set on them, slowly catching fire.
I will stay strong and make my way up slow but steady
Up
And
Up
And
Up
To the top.
You will not tear me down
I will stay strong
And tread the surface
Because
I am strong and will survive
No matter what you put in my way.
