I stood in the shower,
Hot water slapping sharp stings across my flesh,
And I heard a voice from within loud and clear say, “Fuck it!”
I stepped out
Of the tub,
Of my skin,
And I felt like I gave birth to my spirit,
Free to be me.
And each time my flesh tries to trap me in,
I say, “fuck it!”
And pursue myself,
Because only I can trap my spirit,
And only I can free it.
