“you really should…”

I am a self that bears repeating
I oft find myself receding

As if this spark I am is an ember
This light I am a firefly

Firefly -I am the stars
Spark -I am a fire

Filled with a rage

Consuming all my hesitancy
All my denial of me

This graceful anger fills each space
That waits
To be approved of before talking
Appreciated before giving
Loved before allowed

I am burning in my anger the
Oh so carefully constructed space
You have bequeathed me

As if it is a GIFT to live in your rules
As if it is a prize to live in your censure

I am stripping your judgements off one by one

I am dancing naked in the moonlight, a skeleton in the sun.
