Listen to poem:
                “For hope is found when loss prevails,
                 fear is grounded and faith remains”

I need not the ones who turn away
when trouble faces me with dread.
A fever with chills runs down my
spine and I am saddened by her
uncompassionate heart.

But I shine like the eventide tangerine
sunset in the west-
I stop all the insecurity and know that
I am safe where I land. 
I am equal to all who suffer in silence. 

For I shall break free from the mossy
vines holding me back from healing-
I believe in myself for once.

No one can take away my pride, 
or shadow me in the darkness of night. 
I embrace my need to feel loved, 
my desire to always be the one who
craves adoration and affection. 
For I am but a woman longing to be 
whole and centered;
encompassed in silk blankets to keep 
me warm in the chill of pain. 

                 "For hope is found when loss prevails…
                  and I believe in myself for once"
