Have been jostled about
& turned face-down to the pavement,
misquoted in the workplace
based on & contingent on careful planning in my defense
for furtherance of gainful employment,
shouldering my burdens & woes
shoveling the dirt holding me back from self-improvement,
adjusting to changing circumstance
with ruthless daring & clarity of vision
as designer of my fate
