Poem: New Me

There are no more tears to cry.

The burden that held me down is no more.

Suddenly now I can see the sky through the clouds.

I can hear the singing of the birds.

I can see me.

The pain of going has changed to the joy of what is new.

This is the now the old is no more.

The worry about not being seen to not caring who is seeing.

What was hurting me healed me when I walked away.

That life is gone.

I feel no shame.

I came to the wind and ask for directions.

It sent me here to place that has no name.

The place that was never a dream.

The place that will carry me.

I can be calm as the storm.

I can stand tall as the mighty trees.

I can just for once be me.
