power

Disempowerment is more than
withholding resources
or restricting access

it involves a placing
of fences inside minds

barbed with messages:

this is all you are
and your skin, your sex, your education
will always hinder you
from all that you want to be.

How do you fight
against a barrier
that sits inside
your inner self
so deeply?

The only thing
that can dissolve
imaginary walls
is imagination.
