You are an agent

You are an agent

in the world,

no more and

no less than

anyone else.


Those who would deny

your vital agency

would have you

give it away

to interests that

would see you stripped

and not really free.


Be this agent fully

and be this agent awakened,

and affect the world

through your

values and actions;

and defy those

who think that

agency does not exist

or that they know what

you actually want,

so they steal it away.
