A 365 Daily Challenge: Day 207

Day 207
Topic: The day you can claim identity in this world
Topic given by http://missjulietpoe.wordpress.com/

The day you take your backpack off
Opens it
And breath in everything it consumes
From the dearest memories to the darkest corners
You dress up, and wear it
You pull on your first smile
Because that will always be the truest one
Make sure that you iron death
So it is exactly the way you remembered it
No wrinkle or trench to hide in
Just the unjust line towards the empty
Wear love on your forehead
And keep it as far away from hate as possible
Therefore make hate something you thread on
Wear every failure in your heart
That way, you can make sure they are safe
from both the love and hate you may feel towards your self
And it will always stay in your blood
Reminding you of your imperfection
Wear your pride and achievements in your knees
Make sure that they will always balance and support you
With the correct support
It will strengthen your backbone
And keep you straight.
That is where you place your goals
You shade your failure and achievements from your spine
Fighting failure with love
And achievements with hate
Until you can look forward
And take the next step.

When you fully wear your past
Dress for the future
And speak from your spine

That is when your true identity will shine
