Neither do I belong to those fetters of fragility
furled around my feet, nor do I belong
to the shallowly strength depicted
by utter superficiality;
I am the daughter of clay,
and of callosity,
crafted with the competence
of being fragile and fortitudinous
all at once.
I am a mortal moulding
and demoulding to attain the best of myself,
and not the one to corrode away whilst
chasing the calm or chaos of this world.
I shall not be the devotee of the norms
that have been nurtured with sheer
nonsense, but of those rebellions
that taught me to trounce every
worldly woe or wreck.
