I'm pleased with all the responses! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Shelley, I'm doubly pleased that you have found your sense of self reliance! That is something to celebrate!
Denise, Gene, Sunshine and Jeff: As you can see, I used all of your suggestions. Thank you for helping me name this poem. I've always found that to be the hardest part.
Ruth, Marge and Luna: Thanks, ladies. I love how the other poets/poems in here inspire me. Especially thankful since I hadn't felt inspired in a while.
Julie and Michael, I'm *blushing*!
It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
