September, 2013 Poem of the Month. Have a great month, and be ENCOURAGED!

“Empower Me”

On the ropes, I’m good.
On my toes, I’m the best.
You said nope, and I stood on a mountain of no’s to get to a yes.

Look in my eyes the strain is there,
Chasing the prize and the future holds pain and prayer.
Long as I got Petro, I can’t let go…I’ll fight til I run low,
Because I’ve seen the light at the end of the tunnel.

I ain’t Superman, but you’ll forget that I’m human.
I quiet riots, make public private, with a voice that is booming.
They said I wasn’t royalty, but now I’m wearing the robe.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown, but see I carry the load.

When I can no longer stand or I’m in dire need,
There’s a feeling within, chilling my skin, that inspires and empowers me.
