Poets United prompt today was independence. A space released me to the nature of myself. I hope you enjoy this:

In dependence I have found a freedom
That escaped me when I was alone
Too afraid to speak let alone shine
Unaware what I could have sown
Until together I could claim what’s mine
And rise on shakey newborn knees
Accept the mystical romance
Move within the grove of trees
in deepened dance

  1. Sometimes we don’t understand independence unless we have lost it and find we must regain it again and really be ourselves. This is a great poem.
