I have discovered
a peaceful place within my being.
No longer a prisoner of my own fears.
Fears that crippled and devoured
my spirit for years.
At ease with myself
in this place in time,
no feelings of dependence,
a feeling most sublime.
No more my existence
and emotions, do you control.
In my own decisions, my own destiny,
will I play the leading role.
Freedom so dear is now within touch.
My spirit is now blossoming
with feelings of hope and promise,
the sustenance it has hungered
for and needed so very much.
A fading shadow of what once was ,
your eyes will be seeing,
as I grow and thrive
in the new place, I have discovered,
within my own being.
