But In The End

by, Cassandra

Like an arrow through the heart,
you'd think it hurt a bit.
But in the end...
that arrow is the only thing
that holds my heart together.

Like a knife across the wrist,
a thousand hesitation cuts.
But in the end...
that long awaited final cut
was my salvation in disguise.

Like a gun against my head,
one bullet saved for me.
But in the end...
that one remaining bullet
will be what spells your doom.

Like a shackle around my foot,
keeping me with you.
But in the end...
that binding shackle is
what made me see the truth.

Like a poison through my veins,
stealing all my strength.
But in the end...
that poison is what made me
strong enough to fight.
