Core of Me – Written Saturday 4th September 2021 (Aged 46)

Core of Me

there is no use –
in over reacting
uttering phrases like –
i will come out fighting
that is not the cure
that is just self defence
and it feels insecure

the core of me,
it remains intact
and that is truthful
an undisputed fact
just because someone tries –
to clumsily wrestle –
you to the ground
and tear off your mask
it does not alter you

my core remains intact
i can reach around
and take labels from my back
there is not use –
in over reacting
i just act calmly
and find the core of me
