the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 80 – Progress

Leave a comment

Before you
I was innocent and content
Without concern for heartache
I would wade in cool waters
Without fear of the dark depths below
I would welcome others’ flaws
With my outstretched, open arms

Now,
I am no longer naïve
I can stay afloat in every tempestuous sea
I have learned to embrace myself first
