    My Pledge for 2014

    This is the year I blow the roof off

    I crank up my life so loud it explodes

    I leap with abandon as I shed my old skin

    I swoop and I float and I dive so low

    When I emerge from the depths

    My punch lands a blow that cracks the case open

    The thing I most wanted to know

    I can finally see

    The person I am, and what I’m meant to be


    The one you dismissed

    The one you don’t see

    The one you cut, like I’m butter and you’re a knife

    The one who’s been waiting and negotiating for my own life

    Everything I want is hiding in plain sight but was obscured

    While I waited for your decision, your permission and approval

    But this year that’s over, it’s all trash for removal

    No more crowdsourcing and agonizing about what others expect

    I’m here to command my reality and self-respect

    This year I am the master, my own muse and architect

    Keep your eyes on this space

    I am the meaning of success!
