Poem – “Defiance”

Defiance

Depression is a slow and overwhelming fever,
Defiance is the rage potent enough to break it
Defiance is the torch that burns depression’s fog,
Screaming I want to see again, I want to see clearly
I want my eyes to embrace what you always deny me
I need only my own skeleton, never those you create
I want to diverge from you once and for all
