Steel

The steel in me…

What firms me up?

What builds me up?

How does one grow?

What waters a seed I sow?

The steel in me…

Can I be ruthless?

Can I be compassionate in the face of hurt?

Can I be loyal when it’s not truly deserved?

Can I be loyal when it is and I’m the one changed?

The steel in me…

Would I do anything in my life again?

Even if I know the consequences?

Would I change anything?

Would I grow differently if I could?

The steel in me…

Can I firm my vision?

Can I meet my strength fully?

Can I find my bravery in the face of my power?

Can I let my light shine without apology?

The steel in me…

Can I meet the Seductress with steel?

Can I meet the Writer with steel?

Can I meet the woman with steel?

Can I meet the girl with steel?

Can I meet my life with steel in me?

Can I make my visions happen?

Can I take my life on the road I choose?

Can I live out loud?

Can I love and be loved day in and day out?

Can I weave of my life all that I dream?

Yes.
