I am

I am strong and brave
I wonder if I will ever be madly and deeply in love again
I hear the sound of happiness ringing in my soul
I see the world again with new eyes
I want to truly know myself
I am strong and brave

I pretend that I know what I am talking about at times
I feel like I have the power to change my path
I touch the hearts of others
I worry that I may never find myself
I cry when I long for connection, deep connection
I am strong and brave

I understand that their are certain things in life that take time, sometimes a very long time
I say love heals all
I dream about inspiring others
I try to write my feels from my heart and soul
I hope to appreciate the beauty in the every day
I am strong and brave
