I will run
until I feel my heartbeat
pounding in my fingertips.
I will throw punches
until my knuckles
leave blood dripping on the bag.
I will keep working
until my hair
is plastered to my face.
I will fight
until my skin
is slick to the touch.
I will claw
the skin from your back
and sink my teeth into your neck.
I want to unleash my rage upon the world
like a phoenix rising from the ashes
and have the world echo back to me
is that all you’ve got, I’ve seen worse
don’t worry, I can take it, lay it all on me
