The Awakening

in a fresh wound
inflicted upon
by the dagger
of human emotions

I lay quivering
on the soil of earth
seething as a raging fire
nerves boiling

I threw the dagger
into oblivion
calmed in having rid
of hard pain

it yet boomeranged back
more venomous
into a thousand cuts
laying roots deep

as a million legged worm
swooped by a dark owl
in an instant I was lifeless

then I learned to live
with the daggers of emotions
fighting them not anymore
and began polishing my sword
in return
