The good news is that it’s not dead–

That tiny seed within you of

the “you”

you were meant to become.


It was nearly choked out

by the invasive weeds of

your parents’ approval

and the promise of a steady paycheck.


But somehow,

it survived

while you became

what the world expected of you.


Because once,

the 6-year-old you

fortified it

with a dream of becoming a superhero.


The good news is that

despite your most valiant efforts to kill it,

it’s not dead.

It’s merely dormant.
