I will not wait for you

I will not wait for you

I will not wait for you.
None of you. Your freedom
Must not and will not hold
Me back; I have my own.
I am free and you are too.

But you do not hold me in
Chains; Your claws are not
Sharp in any degree. Harm
Me. Scare me. Threaten me.
Wound me. Scar me. But no —

I’m not afraid at all. I can move
Forward and not back, especially
Back. Because that’s the only
Thing you can do but not to me.
I’m too free to be held down

By you, swarm of black demons
That taunt the brave and bold.
I’ll have to finish the race alone
If I have to and I have to. I will
reach the end of the road without

You. Any of you. Race of slackers,
Slow workers and of lazybones.
