Let Her Life Bloom

Underneath the calm exterior
quietly weeps a frightened child.
But beyond the reckoning here
lies agelessness and mystery .
Past the well-traveled soul searcher
rises a distinctly brave woman.
All these daunting memories
have not undone her nor
brought her to her knees.
In the dawn you will find her 
scrawling names in the sand.
Those who fed her-sated her thirst
Those who offered all sorts of balms.
There are ones who inflicted
power and pain with such ease.
Yet through all this light and shadow
her life bloomed on and so did she.
Just a wave tossed in the ocean
she has learned the beauty of hope.

for Debbie Guzzi's contest "Words of Wisdom"
I chose the topic " the great flower of our lives"  because throughout life there is much to be 
reckoned with yet you can bloom above it all-rise up and shine on if you so choose... I feel
that's what I have done myself...

    A poem of hope, a hope that hangs in the pangs of growing, of becoming, of knowing there's light in every star that can reach its far-off destination. Bravo, Poet!
