Don’t you ever question my resilience!!! 

Stay in your lane/ occupy your own space! 

Been on this journey...way before birth...fighting from behind to secure my place. 

Hear my mantra if you wish...

It begins with a loud roar. 

Feel my fire if you dare to; it burns deeply from my core. 

I don’t see you nor your subjection. 

They bear no burden on my life.

I see through your empty rhetoric...

You’re defeated;

Yet attempt to cause some strife.

I rebuke your very presence.

You stand defiant in your role.

Your position is rapidly weakening.

Can’t break my spirit it has no mold. 

I can smell your putrid persona.

Sense your stench from miles away.

Feel your gaze yet you don’t realize.

My eyes surround your every sway.

Don’t indulge me.

I must warn you before you attempt to cast that stone.

I’ll deplete you.

Nothing left of you neither flesh nor bone.

As I continue on my passage which shall never ever cease.

I walk firmly & astutely as my soul seeks refuge in its peace.
