I Claim My Ashes


“I Am

Despite you.

Suffocated spirit

I made my heart an ember box.

Hiding behind conformities façade

Inwardly embracing the burning

Nurturing the coals

I danced till my ashen covered feet

Sparked the ember

In the tinder of possibility.

Wings unfurled & lifted

The gift of changing winds.”
