113/365: Shake Words Into Truth

Say the words with hope
until they one day shake out as truth —
I am strong,
I am powerful, and
I know my own mind —
or accept the truth in possibility —
I can be strong,
I can be powerful, and
my own mind is elastic and mysterious
and shake the words into truth
as you go.

I am writing one poem every day in 2016, and I am using the hashtag #365poems to document my progress.
