i will stage a rebellion-Christine Ray/Brave and Reckless

Brave and Reckless

the lesson

the universe

is handing out

seems to be

humility

wants

to teach me

to graciously

ask for help

cry uncle

swallow

a lifetime of

independence

put aside

prickly pride

discovered

this week

where

budding

acceptance

becomes

rage

becomes

rebellion

if i cannot

walk

i will

fucking

crawl

elbows

may get

bruised

blood

may make

the path

slippery

but

a little glass

and

barbed wire

has never

slowed me down

before

the bite of pain

lends a

remarkable

clarity of

purpose

i am

not

defeated

yet

dammit

i am

just finding

my fight
