I Will Shatter Shackles

I will shatter shackles

Even as I strengthen bonds

We are not one thing only

We are our limits

We are our boundaries

We are that which is not on display

And cannot not be mouthed into words

You will fail

You have failed

You shall be carried

You shall buoy those around you

By your considerable weight

Burden is not weakness

Articulation is not communication

That which we do not understand

Still exists in full

That which we cannot overcome

Is not the last of us

Or the end
