I am all of them, 

every one that screamed or went quiet,

unable to do anything against you, 

bull or swan or shower of gold 

or just a man, crowned with lightning

that scorched their skin for years after your arrival.

I am all of them, 

the ones who were blessed, the ones who were chosen, 

the ones who stumbled and fell into this thing they call 

a gift from god because of your divinity.

No god can grant you that right. No god holds claim over me.

Not me, nor her, nor her, nor her.

Hey, you. You’re finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? Walked right into that Imperial ambush, same as us and that thief over there. Now that you’re here, though, let me introduce myself: I’m Izzy! I’m a Psychology major who spends way too much time imagining stories in my head and not nearly enough writing them down! My interests include baking poorly, hoarding stickers, and petting dogs.
