So Be It!

 

The responsibility -

it cannot be shrugged off

or simply cast aside.

Actions bring consequences

and he would accept them.

Punishment...

disgrace...

he would take them all

and mold them,

turning the enmity

into a source of strength.

The more they mocked

the stronger he would become,

making him something unique -

a walking, talking lethal weapon.

He sucked up

the hatred;

let the contempt

flow through his bloodstream

turning his heart in to a

dangerous threat.

He bowed his head and made a vow;

he was not defeated

and never would be

for he had only been delayed.

One day,

some day

he WOULD be victorious

and for that

he could

wait.
