Strength All Our Own

Early on
We rely
On others
To show us
The way

Depend on them

To tell us
Who we are
And what
We are
Good at

To hold up
A mirror
To our lives
So we can see
What we otherwise
Couldn’t

And one day
We notice
Those others
Aren’t there

Maybe haven’t been
For a while

And we wonder
 
Who we are

What we are good at

And if we are enough

We wonder
Can we
Go on
Without them

We wonder
When did they
Even leave

And it hits us

We’ve been walking
In our own strength
The whole time
 
Strength that while built
In the company
Of others

Has become
A strength
All our own
