Toxic around, toxic within,

People blame and attack,

Right from birth you’re conditioned,

No place can be yours,

Although they belong to you, and you should care,

Sacrifice and adjust should be your motto,

Fly as long as you’re free, and permitted to do so.


Like the sand particle transforming into a shiny pearl,

Like the endless tortures inside the dark cocoon,

Like the diamond taking shape from the sooty coal,

The metamorphosis of a xenas takes place,

Gradually coming out of hibernation,

To bloom on her own merit and on her own terms.


What do you think?
