A man with power, pride perhaps

  with jealousy no doubt.

Tries to control, by putting down

  denouncing and defiling

  with envious beguiling.

All empty threats and meaningless

   and truly of no import.

Unless you take it inward

   engaging self to battle self.

Indeed there is no other

   take back what you have given.

Your power and your peace

   take back what you have given, friend.


Back up a step… and breathe self in!!!


Breathe in the knowledge who you are

   breathe in the peace, breathe in the calm.

Breathe in your light…

   it will illumine what you see

   and flood with light the darkness.

For it alone is all that’s real

   and it alone supports you.

Take back your power, step into life

   and choose a different story.

You write the script, edit the book

   create a new beginning.
