Within Me

Poem for the Hidden Powers competition. [This is also included in my "Leaves of Lines" compilation]


2. Without Me

I let it rip,

I let it ride,

I let it drift

with the tide.


My emotions,

they swing wild,

as my powers

are suddenly riled.


Let them see me,

Let them in.

This is who

I’ve always been


I can’t escape it,

I don’t try.

This is me now,

stop the lie.


My powers burst forth,

a wicked array,

I try not to hurt those

not in my way.


I just want to get out,

Just want to be free,

to be who I am,

and let the world see:


I am not weak ,

I am not frail.

Instead I am strong

underneath the veil.


I toss it back,

I run from here,

there is nothing now

I need to fear


I am strong,

I have might.

And I know 

that this is right.


Let them see

what I’ve become,

the battle raged,

but I have won.
