A thousand axes are cutting me down.
Cut away, cut me down as low as it can go.
You'll all find though that like an old tree,
I'm strongest at the roots.

So no matter how hard you try,
my feet are on the ground and I'm happy.
There is nothing that can be done to uproot me.
God is the only thing that will ever dictate my life.

I cannot be changed and I will resist it.
These changes will be done when I'm ready.
So please take the axes to yourself
And leave me to grow.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'm in a relationship that isn't the best for me right now. I'm giving him the chance to grow up or I'm gone.

Great write, and like you said, change will come in do time.
when one is ready
keep penning
