Chosen for This

I did not sign up for this
I did not volunteer
I did not add my name to the list
I was not given the option to opt out

This chose me

Failure
Pain
Defeat
Anxiety
All handed down without my consent

It steals my sleep
Changes my thinking
Alters my motivation
Breaks my heart

When I let it

Unknowingly
Passively
Lazily
Submissively
All of the responses I use to hide

I did not sign up for this
I did not volunteer
I did not add my name to the list
I was not given the option to opt out

This chose me

Knowledge
Strength
Compassion
Excitement
All of the potential available with my consent

It steals my sleep
Changes my thinking
Alters my motivation
Breaks my heart

When I let it

Consciously
Actively
Aggressively
Intensely
All of the power I’ve been hiding

It chose me
I was chosen for this
I’m ready
To choose
