I won’t apologise

If my voice pierces your ears 

And shoots across the sky, building 

Skyscrapers, and hitching to

The clouds above, and 

I won’t apologise 

If my compelling thoughts,

Sharp as a razor, clutch 

Your heart and claw their way in,

Pumping your blood with 

My dreams, and again, 

I won’t apologise 

If you have to savor 

The flavour of my words 

On your tongue, against your 

Acquiescence on a chilly night 

Because my words 

So silver and so heavy 

Carve stones of my name on 

The ground I repeatedly stabbed

With my ideals 

When I wrapped your unsettling 

Nerves around my neck 

Like a sacred medallion echoing 

The sound of victory, so rare,

So daunting, and so loud 

That my sudden, sly blows

Might make you falter and 

Scoff at my shadow,

Waiting for my edges to smoothen, 

But I’ll let you know that 

I’m still just as unapologetic.

No, I’m not a mess,
Or a glass which could break,
I don’t need you to be
My clutch and stick,
I’m not an ironed cloth,
I won’t get crushed by creases,
Also, I’m definitely not a
Torn dress you need to sew,
Or a broken heel you need
To mend,
I’m just a little reckless and
I mess up, but a mess, I’m not,
I might run too fast,
And fall, but I get back up
Every single time,
I’m the dress that’ll make
The folds a new name,
A new design,
And I’m those shoes,
Which will run a
Thousand miles,
I’m just me,
And I’m complete.
