You Do Not Have Power Over Me

Updated on November 5, 2012

You do not have power over me!

I will rise above

Your labels

Your insults

Your cowardly jabs at my self-esteem;

You do not have power over me!

I do not feel contempt for you

Although I have every right.

In fact, I feel sad.

You must be so insecure.

I also feel pity.

Such a great burden has been placed on you

To save the world's soul.

In the only way that you feel is right.

You do not have power over me!

My soul already knows salvation.

I have nothing to prove to you.

I am free.

You do not have power over me!

I will not change for you.

Your opinion does not matter.

I have validated my self-worth on a larger scale

Far more important than your personal agenda.

Anger has now left my soul

Because you do not have power over me

And never will!
