The Siren Song
Convincing, Compelling, Consuming
Persistent in its Promise
Of Confidence, Value, Worth
Seek it, Work it, Nurse it
Manipulate, Please, Control
Wear the Mask of False Self
To Gain Approval, Acknowledgement, Accolades
Feel the Power of the People
Looking upon You with
Admiration and Awe.
But the Power is Not Yours
It is Theirs
You have Given your Power Away
For They have the Control
And they are Fickle
The Power is Within
The Validation of the Self
That is Empowerment
That is Real
That is True
That is Everlasting.
