I see myself as a warrior reborn
Bolder than starlight gleaming overhead
An enlightened grail that betrayal’s sped
The awakening of power once lost
Like a birthing of inner courage shown;
As shadows of fear turn to grit, atoned
Before dusks’ painful wounds are spread.
Where belief and esteem together ring
Alive with my need for justice, restored
To right honor wronged, as friend's lies sting
And be engulfed by deceit, never again!
Rebuilding trust by self-care well explored
As lessons conquered braver days, I soared
Into a wholeness this spirit finds glowing.
