She called back her power.

she called her power back
reeling it in from the four corners of the earth
prying it from the hands of unqualified suitors

she called her power back
rerouting her life’s stream back to her own dry places
watering her own barren vessel with her heart’s song

she called her power back
reclaiming the wisdom, love, and patience she offered so freely
severing all ties to the parched lips that partook and offered nothing

she called her power back
her own words healed her
her own words saved her soul
