On a cold winter's night, the brisk wind blows.
It tosses my hair across my face.
As I embark on a new journey of only which tales have been told of a fate worse than death, I move closer to face what I have feared.
Though you try to bleed my life from my body, there is a force more stronger than death that guides me to do grasp my dreams and become what I want to be.
Whether it may be strong as bamboo,
or gentle as a butterfly's wing,
I am ready for whatever, whenever, and whoever, that may threaten my existence.
As I stare at my hands with its youthful creases, those that hate me should feel threatened.
For isn't it true that even a dove's wings can be fatal to a foolish man.

hmmm.. very deep but as usual (from your catalog)... well written, write on!

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
