You Don’t Give In

You stand there in that stale room
Holding yourself taller than you’ve ever felt
You can feel the cape behind you, billowing in the wind
You lock your knees, suck in your stomach.

They might try to blow their dust in your face
Trying to cloud your judgment, 
And bring forth the emotions of fear and confusion. 
But you just hold your breath, and, 
Lock your knees and suck in your stomach. 

They should see the scars of the wars you fought
You won’t be controlled, no matter what
Even when you’re naked, stripped of identity
You stand strong. 
You lock your knees and suck in your stomach, 
And you never give in.
