Their Words

by Paula Bonet

let me just say
a lost person
can’t sway a person
with purpose and a vision

a disconnected being
cannot convey words
that are to be taken

i don’t mean
to say that i’m better than them
or that their words don’t matter—
because they do;
they’re the window to their
thoughts and underlying emotions

what i’m saying is
that i’m not letting them
pull me down
while the tides of my dreams
come from an ocean
saturated with faith
and belief
that whatever i see
in my mind
i can manifest
in my life
