Emancipation


These eyes have bid farewell to tears
These lips are never grovelling any more, and
These feet have come to a halt, never running away again.

Behold me now emboldened!
Spirit of the gods, spirit of the earth.
It is time, and my dues are due.

(Having nothing to lose and everything to gain)
I am coming straight at you – like a panther!
Eyes slit, ears poised and claws bared.
Be afraid…very afraid

For this sissy you yoked
Has finally arisen, once and for all
As a Phoenix.
