I am the unplanted seed
The coiled spring
The electrical socket in a darkened room
I am the tensed, aching muscles of the lioness
Anticipating her attack
The pulsing finger on the trigger
The mighty thunder-clap before the tumultuous tempest.
I may not yet have reached my promise, my potential
But just as the tornado strengthens and stirs before it
Touches the granite
It is only a matter of time before the tenacity within me
Takes charge and relinquishes the storm within,
Leaving nothing but awe and revolution
In its wake.

This poem is in direct contradiction to your poem "Insecure," which I just finished reading. I could not have read those in a better order. If you publish your poetry, place these two poems side by side. This was excellent!
