A New Life

by PammyMcB

I surrender my soul to the truth; and with this in mind, a new and wonderful life will begin.

Out of the shadows and into the light,
I take my first step toward a good life
I have struggled, I have fought
I will no longer let myself be bought
I will no longer hide from fate
It is time I took an about face
I am a whole person not half
I should be happy for all I have
I am a woman, gentle, but proud
I will do what it takes, even scream aloud
“Today, I take my fateful stand
I grab my life with a strong hand.”
