I feel like I am learning how to stand again

On my own two feet

with no one there to catch me if I fall

Carefully I take each step

Trying to be aware of what surrounds me

Listening closely to each sound

Standing is not always an easy thing to do

Sometimes it is easer to sit

and let it all pass by

But my soul yearns to stand,

To stand tall


and brave

I want to be seen


and understood

As I stand and look around

I notice I am not alone

Angels surround me and cheer me on

I am standing now

Taller than I ever stood before

and I will continue to reach and grow
