Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

I’m a daughter of the King

There is […]

Fearless

I think I could be an amazing woman

And do amazing things

I’ve been thinking

What if I was fearless

What adventure could that bring

 

Could I jump out of a plane?

Or go swimming with the sharks

Could I climb a […]

I am courage

I try them out

 

I am courage

despite my trembling legs

and shaky hands

 

I am courage

because I move forward

I’ve Decided

By | February 29th, 2012|Categories: Author's Faves, Empowering Poems, Featured Poems, Happy/Feel-Good Poems, Living Life to the Fullest, Poems, Spiritual Essence Collection|

I’ve decided to leave it all behind

I’ve decided I’m letting it go this time

I’ve decided I’m not taking old baggage with me

I’ve decided from stress and worry, I’ll flee

 

Life’s too short to waste a moment […]

Her extraordinary loveliness shines through

An effervescent glow from within

 

What makes her phenomenal?

Is it the stride of her strut?

Is it the […]

Under my Christmas tree

Awaits a special gift for me

Somebody above must really love me

 

They must’ve heard me laugh

Sometimes heard me cry

They must’ve seen me smile

They must’ve seen me sigh

 

They knew what I desired
