Forbidden Chance

img_3472-1

Who really am I?

What makes

my blood flow

desires burn

passion spill

into the streets I walk?

*

One day

my courage opened

a forbidden door

the flame inside me

blazed

allowed at last

to burn

in ways it always yearned

fear ran away with the wind

confidence held my hand

and the real me

lived her life

and inked her pages

with the breaths

of her heart and soul

never regretting

one minute of it
