I Am A Swan

As life roars on I keep my grace. Just watch the love light on my face. This inner strength is mine to own to soften a heart once made of stone. Natural beauty dwells inside. The truth of that I need not hide. A broken spirit's finally healed. The joys of life will be revealed. So I will swim these waterways making the most of all my days. I'll hold the sunset in my eyes and sail beneath the moon struck skies. I chose Swan because it means true beauty ,power of self, love and grace. I feel this is a good depiction of how my life has turned around and how I have now got love in my life which has helped to heal me.
