Within Me

Within Me

a Poem by Raquel Swann

This power within me

Lies dormant

Creativity, passion, & love

Left on a workbench

In a locked room.

I possess the key

It’s in my back pocket

But my damn hands

Are left limp

Flushed with anxiety

That I may not succeed.

Fear drives me away

Pipe dreams such as these

Never come true,

When you don’t even try.

Within me there is a power,

And I am the ONLY one

With the key.
