Defence of Purpose

I want to be the explosion
Not the fuse
Not the one you're left with
But the one you choose
I don't want to be the in between
The prop to salve your pride
I don't want to draw the short straw
And be the next in the line
I don't want to be the one
Paying for other's mistakes
Nor the one forever giving
When all you seem to do is take
What I want most of all
Before the final act is done
Is acknowledgement of my existence
And a place beneath the sun.
