Undefeated [Poem]

You have scorned me
you have beat me
but you couldn’t kill me
your brutal attack burned my flesh
the smell of deadly attempts

 

you were close but far
hidden in the his words
creeping in her eyes
I was drowning in your sea of insecure captivity
your waves kept crashing
until you became somewhat convincing

 

I listened but never heard
Sunk but never drowned
fell but didn’t stay down

 

even though your schemes were tempting
you robbed my peace
took my heart and broke it piece by piece

 

You have no victory
I know the risen King
he has taken my sin
nailed it to the wood you used to bruise m
he has forced your defeat

 

you have scorned me
you have beat me
but you couldn’t kill me
I am broken collateral
not damaged but made beautiful by blood
shaped by pain
alive by death
and righteous by life
