Breathe

I went on a mission to change my name

To cut through my braids and melt all my chains

Chopped off my hair, pierced through my flesh

Wandered away from my home; I fled

Who am I now that I’ve challenged my soul

Conquered the shadows that threatened and broke?

I jumped from the heights, I set out alone

I held fast to the loneliness grinding my bones.

Now I am different, sharper, and free

Now I am entirely

Painfully

Me.
