Child Of Fire

I function as I please.
I get gnashing teeth
when told what to do;
I do what pacifies me.

Travels I have made
to the edge of sanity.
So I have to breathe
and let my heart free.

Conflicted my home,
growing up inside,
taught me what to be;
taught what to hide.

All judge all remember
pieces of memory that
grasp us by the neck to
place weight on backs.

The world is cold,
fair is a word forgot.
The world disfigures;
the weight I’ve fought.
