The Goddess Within Me

You Helped Me To See

Before you came along I saw myself small

My identity was based on the perceptions of others

My voice was soft because I silenced myself

Others that were louder eclipsed my quiet

I didn’t know who I was

All I knew was based on a false reality

I held myself captive

Locked away inside this vessel

You helped my eyes open

Until I finally awoken

To what I realized was never broken

I thought I had no access

To see what you were shown

I needed your light

To remind me

To find my own

It was there all along

I finally felt it in my bones

My voice was alive

And my throat sang its song

You helped me to see

What I did not believe

That is what I really needed

I finally connected to the goddess within me
