Lift me off the ground
In a whirlwind of freedom and happiness that transpired from within.
I am floating
My arms stretch to invite peace.
My body rotates,
As I examine everything around me.
It doesn’t have to look perfect
Because I’ve built the strength to solve new challenges.
An infectious smile stretches across my face,
Tears of joy collecting along my bottom eyelid.
I am weightless and resilient.
I am here,
And forever changing.
I am in control
Of my own happiness and success.
So I rise above
The weight of trivial matters,
Slowly reaching the horizon.
Looking for the sun,
I now emanate my own rays of sunshine.
Opening my palms, I watch light glimmer on my skin,
Running my fingertips along the backs of my hands,
This is all me.
My beautiful imperfections,
My honest flaws,
I can be proud of myself even if I have yet to reach my ambitions,
To achieve a better version of myself.
I am me,
And that is enough.
