I Rise

Baptized in unholy waters
Bathed in the sins of the past
None looking down upon me
Show me any grace
Leaving me to drown
But I rise
Swimming in the cesspool
My lungs are flooded
I lift my hand for help
I am pushed down instead
I am left for dead
But I rise
Just one thing that matters
And I still believe
At the bottom of the sea
Lungs filled with sewage
And salt water
I cannot breathe
But I rise
Because I believe
And will not be denied
