I'm Just Getting Started

why do you see me as broken-hearted?
look out world... 
~I’m just getting started~

for there is no mount high enough for me, 
an open field wide enough for me to spread
my sowing seeds of redemption-
they think I’m caged when I’ve been freed,
see me as small when my heart encompasses
all the world’s emotions
                      (overwhelmingly beautiful…) 

a thirst quenched
          a famine nourished
a photo framed
          a rose flourished

I’m immune to dependency;
saturated in thoughts of liberation and fearing 
not fate-
walking through the threshold of sovereignty,
for it is my prerogative to be happy and hopeful…
finally

freedom from all that held me back flows,
as 
LOVE for MYSELF 
grows;
my life has been blessed since pain has departed-
so look out world…
~I’m just getting started~
