Mastery

I was everything
that you could not
control.
You were the umbrella
and I,
the tsunami.
You were the house
and I,
the cyclone.
You were the forest
and I,
the wildfire.
But you insisted
on bending me
to your will.
You tried
and tried
and tried
and every time,
I could not be contained.
You cannot conquer force
with force,
power
with power.
In the face of all that I am,
my might is to be borrowed.
Absorb it,
and flow with the elements
that rage within my soul.
Only then
will you know
what true freedom
is.
And I will
be free.
