standing

I feel like I am learning how to stand again
On my own two feet
with no one there to catch me if I fall

Carefully I take each step
Trying to be aware of what surrounds me
Listening closely to each sound

Standing is not always an easy thing to do
Sometimes it is easer to sit
and let it all pass by

But my soul yearns to stand,
To stand tall
proud
and brave

I want to be seen
heard
and understood

As I stand and look around
I notice I am not alone
Angels surround me and cheer me on

I am standing now
Taller than I ever stood before
and I will continue to reach and grow

Jennifer, you are so amazingly insightful at your tender age. Keep on putting your thoughts out there and standing tall with the angels - they will hold you up guide you in the right direction!!
