Pulling Back the Curtains

Uncovering the skin
Revealing my identity
Blowing away the ashes

Surrounding me with hope
pulling back the curtains
I emerge
as my "own two feet" carry me forward

with elegance
with beauty
with confidence...

Pen grasped in hand
Fingers ready to type
I share

Glancing in the mirror
Seeing my face
But hearing
the music of stories

No more looking back

the chapters of my life

move forward
the pages turn...

No stopping me now
I have the baton
in this race of life
I will not stop
I will continue.

Gazing forward
with hope
goals to achieve
