Defy, waylay

Unfamiliar, stray emotions
Swallowing down the maddening beats
Unwilling to lose ground
I’ll never yield
Not while I breathe
Forced into a place of weakness
Mustering one last attempt
Battling my every instinct
I defy, waylay
With all my strength
A lifetime’s worth
Of built-up wrath
As I spit death in the face
I will not
Go out
This way
