I Am Free.

It has captured me.

The bending, yielding plant I see.

But more so it’s shadow.

Fascinates. Holds captive my eyes and

keeps me in place.

Just like the shadows deep inside me.

Keeping me rooted from what I truly seek.

Shining a light. Bright as the sun. Still

a few persist. I let go of some.

Days continue. Some lighter than others.

All of them holding blessings and wonder.

When my eyes choose to see,

beyond the shadows. I am free.

Love, blessings, and gratitude, đź’• Carrie
