Self

Everyone always said,

“You can be

whatever you want

to be,”

but not one ever said

I could be my own

worst enemy–

 no one ever said

I  could be

a knight in shining armor, too.

A savior, a hero,

one may say

“It’s crazy to sit around

and just wait for a man,”

but the truth is

I am not waiting–

I am strategically planning,

with every step forward

I awaken, fighting

for what I believe in

and by caring form myself

my self will be closer

to one on the same path,

a true knight

whose values overlap with mine

into a perfect canopy

atop a world

we both can share as knights–

fighting this battle of life,

together.
