Potential

I fall, I get up

I brush my knees

And walk on.

No one comes to help me

Nor do I need anyone to do so

I fight my battles all alone

I have the gumption

I have the potential

I have the wherewithal

To stand for my rights

I have been doing it all my life

And will continue to do so

What breaks me is

When in the guise of help

My very own undermine my efforts.
