A Quiet Acceptance….


One day her eyes lit up with delight

Her heart magically opened

And she embraced her life

The life that she had once detested

Because it was wrought with pain and fear

She saw things differently that day

I guess it was a quiet acceptance of all that had been

And all that would be

She no longer feared the unknown or the dark

She no longer feared herself and all her power

No, not on this day, for today was the day that

For the first time in her life, she felt

Healthy and in control…..
