I am here.
Here to be seen,
not to be watched.

I am here.
Here to be heard,
not listened to.

I am here.
Here in all my being
all my soul.

And if this soul
is crushed and broken
there is no going back.

I am here.
I am like glass.
I am like fire.

If you try to put me
back together piece by piece
I will draw blood.

If you try to light me
back on flames by striking twigs
it will not be me who rises.
