breathe in...

~a poem by Bonnee Klein Gilligan

A man with power, pride perhaps

with jealousy no doubt.

Tries to control, by putting down

denouncing or defiling

with envious beguiling.

All empty threats and meaningless

and truly of no import.

Unless you take it inward

engaging self to battle self.

Indeed there is no other

take back what you have given.

Your power and your peace

take back what you have given, friend.


Back up a step… and breathe self in!!!


Breathe in the knowledge who you are

breathe in the peace, breathe in the calm.

Breathe in your light...

it will illumine what you see

and flood with light the darkness.

For it alone is all that’s real

and it alone supports you.

Take back your power, step into life

and choose a different story.

You write the script, edit the book

create a new beginning.
