You Have the Power

Inspired by “One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.” -Michael J Fox


A person’s dignity can only be rendered by them

Amidst adversity, it constantly gets tested

Sometimes with cruelty and other times with praise

No matter the situation, there is only one with control


Who knows where from judgements stem?

Too many reasons that could’ve manifested

Sometimes, the emotions place us in a confused daze

Only your decision has power to console


Don’t drown in anger or unstitch your hem

Only you decide if you’ve been bested

Perhaps patience will ease the haze

And this lesson is meant to make you whole


Keep moving forward when you feel tested

Don’t surrender when life is a mysterious maze

You have the power within; take control!
