She danced with her thoughts.

Do I follow my heart and run free like the wind or do I lay stagnant in the comforts of my reserve?

My heart and soul desire much, but fear holds me back.

My trust has been broken and my love rejected, so how do I move forward in hope while my past tries desperately to hold me at bay?

Lord you know the straight path that leads to my freedom, help me to see through your eyes instead of the worlds lonely circles that blind.

Joy is on the beautiful horizon, I can see it in my dreams, I long to grab hold and discover true happiness.

Will I be able to endure this adventure, this ride of life to find truth?

Iím up and down, scared and comforted, alone and loved; when will peace take hold and simple be rooted?

When will doubt become belief and restoration to my heart?

I long for love, ache to be held like a child in her motherís arms. Will this rare, but beautiful sensation ever let go and die from within?

When will I be understood instead of discouraged by the confusion I set upon others?

My tears are wet with remorse because I push away any love I am given for fear it will be my last.

Iím not alone I remind myself, I was created from dust and for what? That I would question my life away?

Destiny stands before me and I can choose to fly with the angels of the Lord or remain numb and dead to the world.

I hear my Father calling and his voice is confident in strength. Heís saying rise up my dear one!

I can feel the warmth of his love through the tender arms of my likeminded brothers and sisters, my spiritual moms and dads, and through my grounded grandparents who are aged in wisdom.

Iím beginning to feel sparks of love spring free within me with each touch of gentleness.

My heart being mended by hugs of comfort.

Purpose lies in the front; will I finally run to it?

I canít sit here in waiting any longer; my passion for you Lord drives me to love others.

Iím not alone; Iím reminded not to listen to the wars lying within me because they have already been determined.

God is my one truth and it is him I choose to discover.
