Freedom


In a forest
I lay
cloaked by trees with
leaves of green
looking black instead
for lack of light
I wait.


Those stories
I recall
prince charming on
a white horse
true love bringing
sword and rescue
I hope.


Dawn brings light 
I see
a few inches ahead
sticks and stones
but underneath
a path, clearly marked
I move.


Wind from behind
I crawl
on hands and knees
slowly at first
understanding, perceiving
my strength within
I stand.


A clearing ahead
I run
towards it, stumbling
somewhat dazed, excited
ready to embrace
who I am
I emerge.
