Take Back Your Power

Take Back Your Power  by Tina Murray, copyright Tina Murray, Ph. 2014 (First performed at CSLN, Nashville)

I wrote this poem a few years ago. It has never meant more to me than it does right now. I want to share it with all creative, freedom-loving individuals. Believe in your own self-expression.

Take Back Your Power

You have the power

To change your destiny

Whether you choose to use it

Or not

Is also in your power

So choose to

Take back your power

From your scared self

Who has hidden it from you

Take it back

From your small self

Who has convinced you not to try

Take back your power

From the in-significant others

In your life

Who want you to fail

And have programmed you

To do so

Tell them no

Inform them and yourself

That you do have the power

And that you have decided


To exercise it
