A New Beginning
y fingers clinching tightly to hard wood
Forcing myself to look into glass
For I knew, I will take control of my womanhood.
Goodbye salty raindrops down my pale face
Goodbye pockets repressed
Goodbye limp neck marionette, on tightly strung line
Goodbye darkness abreast
Goodbye tarnished rings of gold
Goodbye interrupted rest.
Hello diamond color eyes, in creamy pink flesh
Hello warmth from above
Hello green paper, wrapped around silver and copper
Hello flying free dove
Hello little feet, buried in solid brown soil
Hello unconditional internal love
I am ready to shed my worn tattered skin
Move towards the radiant light
And surrender, for a new life begin.
