Unending Love I have died several times. I have been beaten countless times. Left bloody the earth swallowed my life's essence gone. Yet I am still here. I have been lost countless times parched delirious emaciated. I tasted defeat constantly. stabbed in the back I bleed relentlessly. Yet I am still here. In the dark I was stripped to my bare bones. pecked and picked at I was a tattered mess. Blinded by fear I have been mocked and jeered. I have been left to crawl across molten lava. Yet I am here! Defeated in battle abandoned by the troops through Sargasso wide and far I have weaved. Left behind too slow for the "we" I was made a pariah A bud balling for release. Yet I am here! Yet I am here! Yet I am here! How?
