you blinded me, i found the gift of sight,
you cast me in darkness, i found my light,
you disowned me, i found the will to fight,
you censored me, i learnt to growl and bite,
you cut me, i found my renewal in blood,
you starved me, my thirst ignited a flood,
you ravaged my flowers, i sprouted new bud;
I created new life from the crippling mud...
and I thank you for all of the memories,
as these, are now, the best of 'me's',
and i can sleep at peace, and ease,
i've navigated the roughest of seas.
