I’ve been trying now and again to challenge myself to write differently. And I don’t at all claim to be a poet…but I gave it a go…
My steps light, but sure
Your hand soft, yet strong
I stop. Breathe. You lift me up.
If I could see your face, would I feel different
In the absence of a form, I still know
I stop. Breathe. Your hand is ever there.
Peel back the pride, the reasoning
The wants that lead me astray
I stop. Breathe. I only want Your way.
I’d not change a day of fighting up
I’d not give away a moment that led me closer
I stop. Breathe. What else can I do.
My knees they bend. My eyes they close.
Remember what I am and am not.
I stop. Breathe. I am your daughter. Loved.
