Never Powerless

Today, on the back my left hand
The part of me which I claim to know so well
I wrote the words ‘I am awake’
To remind myself
That this isn’t a dream;
To remind myself
That I am not powerless to act
I can intervene in the present
And cause a change
For better or worse
Not sleeping
Not helpless
Always waking

And to remind myself,
While sleeping,
That when I see the words on my hand
In a niche of subconscious that mimics reality
I can drive my dreams
Farther than they’ve taken me before
