‘They told me

I’d never get to tell my story

Too many bullet holes

It would take a miracle
These voices

Inside my head like poison

Trying to steal my hope

Silencing my soul
But my story is only now beginning

Don’t try to write my ending

Nobody gets to sing my song
This is the sound of surviving

This is my farewell to fear

This is my whole heart deciding

I’m still here, I’m still here

And I’m not done fighting

This is the sound of surviving
These pieces 

The ones that left me bleeding

Intended for my pain

Became the gift You gave me

I gathered those pieces into a mountain

My freedom is in view

I’m stronger than I knew
And this hill is not the one I die on

I’m going to lift my eyes and

I’m going to keep on climbing
I’m still here

Say it to the ache, lying there awake

Say it to your tears

I’m still here 

Say it to the pain, say it to the rain

Say it to your fear
This is the sound of surviving

This is my farewell to fear

This is my whole heart deciding

I’m still here, I’m still here
And I’m not done fighting

No, I’m not done fighting

And I am still rising

Rising, I’m still rising

And I’m not done fighting

This is the sound of surviving
.I’m still here

Say it to the ache, lying there awake

Say it to your tears

I’m still here 

Say it to the pain, say it to the rain

Say it to your fear
This is the sound of surviving

This is my farewell to fear

This is my whole heart deciding

I’m still here, I’m still here
And I’m not done fighting

No, I’m not done fighting

And I am still rising

Rising, I’m still rising
And I’m not done fighting

This is the sound of surviving’
