Plastic Backbones

Owning and not to borrow or loan,
One's direction taken...
Consisting of a mix of confidence,
Faith and initiative unshaken.
And unafraid to admitting,
The making of mistakes.
These are the straight-up no nonsense people.

Yet others who protest against,
That which they had accepted with consciousness...
To then wish a quick fix demanded that mends,
Their broken plastic backbones too inflexible to bend...
Have found themselves melting when heat begins,
To test a faith claimed obtained by praying...
With false images portraying pretended strength.
