Boundaries (Choka)

not lion brave, me
crossing prescribed boundaries
no butterfly grace

improvise a flight
from which there is no return
painful time of change

I fight for my right
let me be unusual 
though you don't connect

Badge made by me using Pixlr
Yeah, I know today is Thursday

If you dig my wild style, get more here

  1. I hide in the shadows rather than fighting for my right to be unusual - but yes.

    1. I'm not nearly as flamboyant with it as I used to be. These days it's more a stand my ground thing than a fly my freak flag thing.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
