Survival

Do not beat me

or batter me

with words or blows

for you cannot defeat me

by these means.

You may rape me

take my body,

bend or break me

with brute force

but you cannot

take me, make me

let go of what I believe.

My soul cannot conceive 

of submission.

I do not give permission

for you to enter there.

That inner place

is my sacred space

it keeps me whole

and heart safe.

Inviolate.
