A Defiant Soul.ver I Poem by Alen wheeler


Oh Fate I will not be bound by thee
mine path shall not be dictated by circumstance
I will raise a banner of rebellion against thee.
Though I am flawed, imperfect and fallible
My heart and soul are a pure fire that will not be quelled

fate I will stand against thee,
like light from oft high in storm clouded sea
though the storm may rage around me
I will remain unmoved by thee

though fool I may be I will fight thee
with the fire of my soul
it is a blade that cannot break
fate you are dragon and I shall slay thee
