Empower Me

 Is that me
Or a whisper
Emanating from this shell
That sees and hears
But doesn’t.
 
A puppet
owned,
controlled
By strings,
used
without
comment
without
emotion
without
respect. 
 
Then You
radiating
love and
belief.
 Injecting
My soul
My body
Awakening me
From a slumber
Like never before.

Urging
supporting
comforting
my baby steps
as we watch together
embracing
both triumph and failure
As normal
Rather than
me being me.

Oh my love
will we bask in this sunlight
Together
Forever
entwined
by learning
And understanding.

Or am I set to grow
Unfettered
without
Barriers
constraints
no one can
shape this journey
for it is mine
Alone
my love.

Your love
will be with me
always
for without that
We would be
Doomed to fail
Each other
As my reliance
fashions
Only stagnant
memories
and fear
Of my own
Failure.

I see you now
From afar
Happy
Contented
A path
fashioned
by family
Your life
filled
with
Love and Laughter.

You
Empower Me.
Each day
I grow
Sharing
when asked
Supporting
Always.

My life
Anew
Each day
A journey
filled with
Real
not judged
And it is
mine
to choose
What happens next.

As I travel
forward
Nothing
will make
me change
Me
Ever Again.
