Life Through Her Eyes: 29

                                                                                   What scares you most? 

Is it that I still exist? 

Is it that I still find ways to get under your skin? 

You have your guns your bombs and your army your American friends 

And a garden of millions 

I have my faith and a rock 

I shouldn't be that scary 

You created the monster you were trying to put down 

By stripping me of everything except my voice and my right to the land 

After all, strength comes from within 

Beauty shines from inside 

Resilience is either there or not
