So since it is Poem in your Pocket day here's my poem that I will share again...
Looking for love, acceptance and grace
Even though raised in a very loving place.
Fearful of rejection and trying so hard
To become someone who would not be barred.
Changing thoughts to make a new me
That came through epiphany.
Almost able to say good riddance
From someone ugly, from someone hidden
To someone beautiful, to someone free
Who is not afraid to be
The lovely women for all to see
Moving into creativity
To someone living and abiding
Into a place of trust and no backsliding
Transformed by love, acceptance and grace
Living in that wonderful place.
Having changed the clothes of disgust
Into them no longer stuffed
But becoming the real me
Almost there but not quite free
The little girl that is no longer quite so afraid
Of rejection or needing to evade
The propinquities that appear
Able to dance to the music I hear
A new rhythm, a new beat
Swaying and moving with my dancing feet
Still in process but coming along
Finding and singing my lifesong
