What once was daunting is now empowering
What once had me nearly on my knees has given me wings
What once left me stoic in silence has made me loquacious with laughter
What once gave me grief has given me the gift of profound joy
What once left me shackled, tied to the metaphorical bedpost
has posted bail and declared me innocent and unbound
What once left me invisible has made me someone worth remembering
What once left me feeling lonely and isolated
has made me feel inhabited in my solitude
and a gleeful player on the world’s stage

Your poetry is getting stronger each day too Kim – keep playing on the world’s stage. 🙂
Thank you Suzanne. Playing with lots of images that are popping in my head!
It’s all about perspective isn’t it?
Beautiful & inspiring . . . very powerful!!
Thank you very much. It was fun to write, actually. Especially, since it came on the heels of “Hidden Hunger”!
