I Own Me

I own me


I Own Me


It has filled my arms
The becoming
While I’ve remained lost
Sometimes I see a place
To walk along awhile
And dream of pieces
In the middle of it all
Even with my eyes closed
I’ve seen the ones
That want me under
As I feel the light
On my face
I’ve felt the trap
Around my breath
I walk again
Until my knees fall
I crawl for stars
As I’ve been pulled
I found my breath
In open arms
As the heart wide open
Scares the dark

In mind of these harms
And the cunning
They now lick their cost
Out of reach of my grace
And of range of their bile
As toxic feces
Weighs down their choking fall
Has found me unfolded
For I am done
With all the blunder
Not mine or my fight
To unlace
Around my lap
Weakness’s death
Movement begins
A world in me calls
To remove scars
From air so full
You’d think a death
Embraced my arms
To become a chosen
With a mark
