Twenty-Two

Heady with freedom, I can hardly stand

I burst with independence.

Gone are childhood and troubled teen years.

I can FLY! — What’s this?

Chains bind me to mere earth existence.

My axe! I hack at DNA strands

Woven in nurturing love to imprison me.

Let me GO! Don’t you see who I am?

I am ME! I have arrived.

This my declaration of Person-Hood.

You cannot know me — I am changed.

Freedom remade me

Come adore the new version.

Reminders of who I was are wasted words.

I am REBORN! My power without bounds.

Rage builds strength

I will never admit terror.
