A New Path

resetting of life
starting a new path
discoveries anew
surprises await
a victim of fate?
I think not..
a woman, full grown
intelligent mind
heart of gold
learning what she can
moving through trials
triumphing where others have failed..
growing with each step..
pain and joy mingle together
love and hate joined as one
tears of release wash her heart clean
she stands before a new path
like a babe newborn
eyes wide with wonder
soul afire
head held high
she walks forward
beginning to run
feeling her burdens lifted
her soul released
her feet leave the path
taking flight once more
and soars
