I Am Cecily (Poem)

Originally composed in 2008. (I was 18.)

I may have been maimed by actions

And stabbed by words

But I will not reward malevolence satisfaction that it does not deserve

Undeniably resilient

Like the Phoenix, I rise

I execute my brilliance

No longer letting tears stream from my eyes

Dreary shrills may have invaded my ears

As unveiled before me stretched bloodsoaked concrete

But I am NOT like the bulk of my peers

My environment does not define me

I will work until I bleed

Won’t rest ’til I succeed

I may stumble, but I will always race back to the lead

Never will I ever be constricted by threads in my fabric that I cannot unweave


Reaching for my destiny

I am triumph, I am strength, I am love…
