She rebels

Rebelling against

Your lies as they

Unfold, unforbidden

Against hatred

Bestowed upon her

What lies beneath

Her sadness is

A raw exterior

Ticking bomb

As she rebels

Against her pain

Mental, physical

You name it — her suffering

A life she didn’t choose

Yet thrown at her

With such force

Such trauma

Facing it as she rebels
