ready to stand

Between the darkness there is light
I may stumble, and I will fall, but I have learned how to get back up
The words they speak are harsh
They stab deep into the heart
But I am navigating my own path
Each day I carve a piece of it, guiding me closer to my hearts desire
I am finding my inner light
And I no longer fear letting it shine
I am constantly seeking, searching, and never giving up
I will find my way
My voice will be heard
I will clear the path and shed light on a new way of thinking
To grow we must evolve and stand in that uncomfortable place
I am ready to stand
