You can’t take my thoughts hostage, a poem for @JennaRoseSimon by Tracy Diane Miller
You really don’t know me
If it fills you with delight
And if you believe
That you have the power to control my thoughts
On any given day or night
For you can’t take my thoughts hostage
Even if you believe that you can
You can’t prowl around my brain
With your menacing hand
Because I define me
I am not weak
I won’t be silenced
If that’s the agenda that you seek
You see my tears
Yet you are so heartless
That you rejoice
You think that my pain
Is proof that you own my voice
But I am not silent
My thoughts are mine
I define me
The strength I will always find
I define me
I hold the power
You can’t control my thoughts
Not now
Or any hour
