- Daniel Schlansky
Meticulously I etch each letter,
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.
