That’s all it took
For me to come full circle
I didn’t fully grasp the concept of black and white.
I also didn’t realize how refreshing that splash of color can be
And how it makes my life pop
Recovering from years of living softly on this earth
Memories of physical pain
I am accepting my body as it is, whole now
And it won't break if I use it again.
Learning to dream
Recovering my faith, hope
Believing in myself
Remembering that I am strong
Crawling out of the mess
Leaving the darkness behind
Running toward the light
Learning not to lean on anyone
Accepting my own challenges
Aligning my own spirit
Creating my own environment
One year later
The door is wide open
And I’m ready for anything to happen
I can rise or I can fall
I can leap and dance gracefully or I can rest and plan for tomorrow
With the waves crashing in my ears, and singing me to sleep each night
There is always time enough, always love enough, always peace enough.
It’s amazing how the world looks so different, in just one year.
