More Time

More time than I needed you to see.
You will never, ever get the best of me.
I was broken in ways I couldn’t think or say.
But instead of dying, I made a change.
Do you wish you could do things over?
Suppose those things would be done sober?
Hope you’ll find another one like me?
More time than I needed you to see.
I’m the rose you plucked for yourself, full of wonder.
The love you thought you’d crush bare handed.
The one who thought her world was over.
But rose through the rubble, still standing.
Survived a life full of bare minimums.
Scraped and clawed to breathe.
Took pain as advice instead of striking them.
More time than I needed you to see.
