waging war with the way i come
the pieces of me that don’t fit
in your ways

desiring more pieces
pieces i’m scrambling to keep

agonizing contortions
my agility is spent

my ways, 
undeniably unwavering

i am, who i am.

your complete
your peace
your brave
your sane
the battles you wage
to gain, ‘yours!’

either way, i lose.


                             are not my fight.
