Poem #186

She finally got to hear those words.
You offered her the moon and the stars
and the sun and the whole world but she refused.
You’ve been gone for so long and she
became stronger and capable of walking alone.
The darkness wasn’t the big bad wolf trying to swallow her.
She made a friend out of it.

A really effective affirmation about learning to walk alone despite one’s fears, and thus discovering your own strength. Really nice, and something I found myself reading several times, enjoying the imagery. Lovely.
