What Empowers Me

What empowers me,

Is to look, at my frail wrists,

And see that I am finally free,

Of the shackles, I'll never miss


What empowers me,

Is to look back, every now, and then,

Just to see,

How far my past is from me, again


What empowers me,

Is to whisper "I am fire,"

Because I'll show my enemies,

That I will always burn brighter


What empowers me,

Is to mend, grow, and conquer,

Breathing in, positivity,

Because I will be negative, no longer


What empowers me,

Is the knowledge that I'm young,

Knowing that there's so much to see,

And that my life, has only just, begun
