The Obdurate Sinner

If I am going to burn

because I am not good enough

pure enough

smart enough

to see and hear

what I am supposed

to think and feel

defined by rules

and deeds

penned by another’s hand

 

I will gladly strike the match

and go with the flames

free to run, free to walk, free to fly

free to be me, free to be a dream, free to sleep

free to think

and breathe.

 

You can stand there.

You can watch me burn,  see by my light

and wait for the darkness to take you

back.
