This poem by Columbine is a perfect example of what I mean when I talk about refusing to give away your power–and could have easily been a quotation by Odin to me, in fact. Bravo!
Occupy your seat! Do not sit there in complacence, hoping for the world to recognize what you fail to assert! You do not live for the sake of mere existence!
Occupy your place in this world! Or the bounds of your territory will wither away until there is naught left but the receding scraps of your potential!
Occupy your words! You must breathe life into your thoughts with conviction, rather than with indecisive platitudes!
Occupy the power borne into the form you call yourself! Only you can be who you are meant to be!
And never, ever, allow yourself to be occupied! I did not place you here to be exploited or enslaved!
You are a Queen! You are the Mother of your House! You are the ruler I have installed here!
So occupy yourself, and your future! And be a bane to those who would plow over your life…
