The Power of You

The Power of You is a poem, written by my son, that has a compelling message of the power each one of us has within to make changes and to understand that we are capable of making these changes. It takes a belief that you can do it, while recognizing the fears that weigh you down and hold you back. It is when you recognize your power and believe in yourself that the fears will begin to diminish. When you stop running from your fears, you are able to hold your head up high with pride and strength while realizing your ability to reach your goals and dreams. Spread your wings and fly - you are worth it. You are worth the time and energy to make changes and to grow. I am here to give you a hand up whenever you are ready.

The Power of You

You have a gift within you:
The power to get through.
You're capable of rising up;
There's nothing you can't do.

The world is consumed with magic.
Today just marks the start
Of believing in your opportunities.
Believe with all your heart.

Remove the weight of limits;
Give yourself a chance.
Firmly stand and plant your feet,
The ground will feel your stance.

It's here your head shall learn to rise,
And focus on what's to come.
Your fears will see this inner strength;
From them you'll no longer run.

Exhale the grief from past mistakes;
March on down the road ahead.
Your soul has in it the ability to fly;
Your wings are worth being spread.
