SHE RAGED

She raged and she raged
Why don't they see me
Why don't they offer a hand
She wept from on her knees
She disappeared
That's what girls do
She pleased and she gave
She listened and obeyed

She raged and she raged
Why don't they see me
Why don't they offer a hand
She wept from on her knees

She died and died
A thousand times over she died
On the inside
There was nothing left
From her ashes she rose
This time she stood
She needed no hand
From the mire she climbed

And she took a deep breath
She inhaled freedom and strength
Everything looked new
Even her broken wings

Pain no longer her cage
Now her North Star
Rage no longer her barrier
Now her fire
And she raged and she raged.
