I Challenge Life – Poem (2001)

I challenge Life,
In a world of masked illusion,
With fake visions of perception,
I challenge life to defy me.

I challenge life,
In a world untamed in shame,
With wicked shrines of uncertainty,
I defy life to grasp me.

I challenge life,
In a world of a thousand paths,
With the relics of pain and misfortune calling from all corners,
I defy life to force me.

I challenge life,
In a world of helplessness,
With the plague of ignorance and stubbornness in this world,
I defy life to stop me.

I challenge life,
In a world where it’s ‘life’ that holds us back,
With its web of time, knowledge, and emotion…
I’ll endure life’s battle and become who I was meant to be.

Myself.
