SURRENDER – Stream of cold breathing, slowly tired feet press the ground. Gentle flow scent of growth that opens me. And I surrender now, I stand up now, I open to only you now, I choose now, I refuse now, I ignore you now, claim my power, I carry you, I nurture you, give birth to you again feel your heart again, touch me again, I surrender again. Feel my pride from the inside jungle red, easier felt than said. I’m raising you, yet my grace is unknown to you. I carry you, I nurture you. Give birth to you again, feel your heart again, touch me again, I surrender, claim my power, I surrender now, I stand up now, I open to, only you now, I choose now, I refuse now, I ignore you know, claim my power. Let me rest in the water, let it cleanse what is left of me. I’ll face this, smother it and rise above it. I surrender now, I stand up now, I open to, only you now, I choose now, I refuse now, I ignore you now, claim my power, I carry you, I nurture you, give birth to you again, feel your heart again, touch me again, I surrender.
