I will build

Crush me with your goodness
Walk on the ruins of my sins
Watch me tumble down
From the rumbles again I will build

Shatter me with the weight of your charities
Debase me from the pedestal of your pride
Defeat me with every sound logic
From the pieces of my respect, I will build


Mortify me for my truths
Manipulate every ounce of my honesty
Trample me beneath your arrogance
From the dirt of your heel, I will build

Accuse me in every court of love
Hold me guilty for untamed feelings
Blame me for not embracing company
From the traces of esteem, I will build

Play with my courtesies, my compassion
Laugh on the tears of my joyful sorrow
Mock my faith, my beliefs

From the throne of your disbelief, I will build
