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.
