Today Shall Be Mine's

i still fight
those faceless, 
featureless, creatures,
the demons 
that dwell
my heart.

the foul
that deprive
my union, 
my light 
sould apart.

i know them, 
not by sight, 
not by touch, 
taste, nor sound,

but by the weight 
upon my soul 
they bear
when other souls
are not around.

since i birthed, 
my first thought
they prayed
to be my guide.

they prayed i'd turn left 
from the refuge
of the right;

they prayed i'd turn right 
from the light
of the left side

whenever and
i step 
i am still chained
by their direction;
their direction
and their depth

yet, still I step
like the present 
into the past, 
like a rabbit’s paw
silenced by a 
single elephant’s pass

they leave me low
to share 
the fate of the moon
how cruel 
to be so bright,
but not so bright
as to inspire the noon.
forever doomed

to nurse their kindle
and never know
my own flame
yet today,
i nurse their kindle
just the same.

if only, i can
find the strength
to go left, 
and not go right, 
i will steady
my own course 
and tread through
the dark, desert night

i will break ranks with the dark
to make tracks of my own
i will run towards what is me;
and to myself i will be known.

i will give birth to that fire
that reverses my fate
shaking, all that is dark
breaking,  those shackles
i so hate.

if only, 
for this moment,
for this day, 
for this time,
tomorrow they can have
but today shall be mine.
