The Discovery

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 soaring
with hope and promise, 
the sustenance needed so much.
A fading shadow of what once was ,
your eyes will be seeing,
as I grow and thrive 
in this place, I have discovered,
within my own being.

Pat, this is another very good poem. I am happy for you. Finding strength within yourself is the first big step in the cycle of love. Once one loves and respects oneself and knows who they are, then, true love can be gained. Self respect is an important part of mutual respect in a relationship. Take care, my real world friend!!! I'm so glad that you are on here. Keep writing. Lovingly, Dane
