Realization of who I am
"My Powerline" by jusylee72
I gave my power to others
 afraid to speak 
  afraid to believe 
    afraid to imagine

I let others define me
 Pen me in ink
   Pen me in crayon
     Pen me in erasable marker

I let their beliefs become mine
 Good Catholic girl
    Good Wife 
        Good Mother 

I questioned nothing
 Knew I deserved pain
   Knew I was stupid
     Knew my ideas were flawed 

                 I risked total failure

    I stood in the middle of my house 
  Intently searching for myself
Investigating the gifts I was given

    My life was a decision
  My life was a choice
My life was a promise

And then one day 
   I lit my own powerline
     I spoke with my own voice
      I reached for my own happiness 

And realized
  The world is a better place with me in it
    The world enjoys my laughter 
      The world and I are wonderful

And my powerline
  Ignites my soul
    invigorates my life
     initiates belief in dreams

                    And I am the owner 
                        of the light switch
