over coming

born to go
raised to stay
now my plan for you
is to beat you in every way

what you held me from,
what i never could do,
i now enjoy,
but no thanks to you.

your absence,
(though it hurt,)
for me has been,
the best thing on earth.

what i needed was oh-so-simple,
yet you thought if i did it,
it would leave you a cripple.

one thing to say,
and one thing is all,
i was your biggest trip,
now i can laugh at your fall.
