Vigilant

I do so unabashedly refuse

To compartmentalize myself

By capitulating to the world

In any way, shape, or fashion

Become complicit to reduction

Thereby reduce my wholeness  

As a preferred version of myself

Our world tries that all by itself        

Make us weaker; or susceptible

Easy to conquer us in tiny pieces       

I further admit it’s not effortless

To remain as self-preservational

If you can’t defeat me all at once

Because I’m ready to defeat… you
