"Unyielding"

Metamorphosis not nearly complete
Changing as much as can be changed
Learning to live with the unyielding
Swimming against the tides
Feeling the resistance
And the forces against me
Been resistant and unyielding as well

Stubborn in my moving forward
Bucking any and all restraint
Unwilling to be turned around
Looking back with new eyes
Seeing with my head and not my heart
As unyielding as I should have been
All along the path to me

At last emerging steady and strong
No faultering in my steps
Firm and strong in my beliefs
Unyielding as I have ever been
Willing to march into hell
Rather than tiptoe submissively
Into a heaven not meant for me
