no foothold

no foothold

A Poem by Ashly Christen
"

you have no power here

"

I wont let you drown me out

I will not let you fill my lungs with your putrid bile

I will not breathe

yet I will not suffocate

because my power comes from a place much stronger than you

I will not let you have me

I have overcome

I will do it again and again

I refuse to give in to your negativity

you surround me with black energy

I will blind you with my light

you cry and whine and I will not hear it

I will not give in and succumb to your silly pleas

you are pathetic and I will not be the same

I will not let you have power over me

for I am stronger

I am worth more than you think

I may bend

but I will not break

You've proven your point majestically, with multiple examples to support your predicament as well. Though somewhat disheveled, the thoughts center around one another as a ferris wheel would; with a connection despite obvious visual deceptions. Well done.

I love the use of "I" throughout..giving it more self power with each use. Not letting people steal our light to feed there dark is hard but you have taken that and put a powerful voice to the task.. well done..xo :)

thank u much lily
It's definitely a strong, inspirational write-up. There is an indomitable spirit in the narrator whose power escalates through the expression of words. I myself feel strengthened when i read this poem out loud. What made you write it? =)

Quite, quite cool :) I loved the fact that I could see a really small person giving off a blinding white light. Some very powerful imagery used here.

Spirit filled...I LOVE it! Recognizing the power of your potential...your royalty as a child of God...your worth and your meaning in life...but remember as Paul said, "We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Let no man then be named your enemy but stand your ground against the darkness.
Bless.

You are woman I hear you roar... we all need to take these words to heart... we should not allow anyone to tell us how to live our life, even a loved one. Love the strong positive message of the poem.
