No! I won’t wear a mark on my forehead saying 666

I refuse

Not because I deny my reality

I know I’m different now

But I will not let this define me

I am so much more

I am still me

I am what I’m still yet to become

this fear hanging over my shoulder

this sadness in my heart

I must admit it is powerful

and sometimes I get overwhelmed

and shed tears for what I thought was denied of me

for the broken pieces of the what if’s and what could have been’s

let me cry for now

light a candle if you must

but I will not be branded

I know I am still more

you may clip my wings

but my spirit
