Engravings

Meticulously I etch each letter,

Each word,

Each sentence,

Each name,

Each date,

Into stone,

Into wood,

Into plastic.

I leave marks on the smallest of places,

The most indiscrete places—

The places no one looks.

I don’t do this just everywhere,

I do it where I’ve loved,

Where I’ve laughed,

Where I’ve cried,

Wherever I please.

Wherever I feel connected to.

That place that I engraved,

It will surely outlive me,

Yet still It’s mine, a piece of me.

Every groove, curve, scratch, is an extension of myself.

I am limitless, I am whatever and wherever I choose,

I am more than just myself,

And no one can take that away from me.
