turtle shell

turtle shell holding me back
from possibility sinking weight
on my back drowning deep
descending all the way down
time to make turtle soup
crack that serpent shell
fortify my body with blood
my past sacrifice to future
the world’s wound sutured
staunch bleeding with elements
demand the universe hear me
make magic happen here
no option but to succeed
beaten but not defeated
now turn the table and riposte
switchback defense twist
wins the duel matching vision
time to start that conversation
unconfused by language babbling
clarified with knowledge and passion
i demand fierceness manifest
rage to live within and again
defiant scream so mote it be!
