She was a Wallflower
who chose to become empowered
blending and bending
unaware of the messages
that this was sending,
to others – but mostly herself
and the path she was a strollin’
she could see would not lead, clearly,
to a happy ending.
Change isn’t always fast.
Acceptance is a CHOICE
She had to choose both
if she wanted the growth
that would follow
She had been hollow for far to long
so she sang her surrender song
Sometimes she felt stained by darkness
and the inky stains left upon her heart
she learned to cope through release into her art
She poured her soul into paintings,
Her hummingbird thoughts crashed upon the page
creative expression was the key
to finally set her FREE
from the lifestyle that had become her cage.
She often felt afraid,
recalibrating she would say.
Sometimes coping feels like , “I can’t!”
– and then you’ve made it through another day.
Words are not wind if you act and follow through
As she learned these basic fundamentals
the world became less cold and cruel.
With a desire to live as fuel
No longer background noise,
She had found her voice
From wallflower to vibrant garden rose
this girl continues to heal and grow
It is about the journey NOT the end
NEVER to be silent again.
