Light

  

I don’t have to  tell you 

All the boys 

bought condoms 

And all the girls 

Bought rape whistles and pepper spray 

I don’t have to tell you 

About biting your tongue

And holding back

Or censoring yourself

I don’t have to tell you 

About waking up next to someone 

And it’s not the best part of your day

I don’t have to tell you…

And that is why 

this is

For you 

Because you’ve been there 

You’ve walked those floors 
But

now 

you stand on your own 

And the thoughts of those 

Who don’t know you 

Can’t touch you 

And the light 

That shines in the darkness 

Is from you 

And 

You are worth coming home to

One step 

At a time 

You’re building your future 
There is 

A light 

That will not go out 

There is a light 

Inside of you 

There is also this crazy idea 

That 

You are worth 

Openness 

You are worth the great leap 

You are worth 

Stability 

You are worth 

Companionship 

And freedom 

You are worth 

Great 

Amazing sex 

You are 

You 

And no one 

No one else 

Can bring 

What you have 

To the table 

Only 

You 

And that 

Is 

your power
